SHELTON - People can enjoy some food and listen to music, and get a COVID-19 vaccine all in one at Celebrate Shelton’s final Downtown Sounds Summer Concert Friday, Aug. 6.

The free mobile vaccination clinic - which is co-sponsored by the state Department of Public Health and Griffin Health - will be at Veterans Memorial Park on Canal Street East from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Walk-ins are welcome, and no appointments are required.

“Now is the time to support live music, the arts and independent music venues,” Nicole Heriot-Mikula, one of the creators of Celebrate Shelton, said. “Each night offers a great musical lineup, food trucks, handmade artisans, and a beer garden sponsored by New England Brewing Company.”

Gates open at 5 p.m., with the Kids Hour to follow. This week will feature a TikTok Dance Party with Thrive Dance CT, and then live music with the Funky Dawgz Brass Band and Bella's Bartok.

Nearly 2,000 people combined attended the past two Fridays.

“We are thrilled to gather again this summer in Downtown Shelton,” fellow co-creator Jimmy Tickey added. “We have heard from business owners about the foot-traffic and vitality this has brought to our downtown each summer, and we are so pleased to bring families together for the concert series again.”

The event’s community partner for the concert series is the Boys & Girls Club of the Lower Naugatuck Valley. The concerts are free to attend, though there is a suggested donation of $5.

Food trucks include Los Mariachis on Wheels, Mestezo Grill, Dads Cannoli Truck, Shoreline Prime Food Truck, Szabo's Seafood, The Cheese Truck, Milkcraft, and Greek Style Grill.
