Know someone in need of some love and connection right now?

As Ohio is reopening and we begin venturing out, many of our elderly and vulnerable community members still have to isolate –– and our businesses need our support more than ever. Dublin Arts Council, City of Dublin, Dublin Convention & Visitors Bureau and the Dublin Chamber of Commerce have joined forces to bring Dublin Curbside Concerts to the community, beginning July 3 and continuing throughout the summer.

In partnership with Greater Columbus Arts Council (GCAC), Can’t Stop Columbus and the Columbus Foundation, these 15- to 20-minute intimate concerts will take place in front of individual homes, on the grounds of senior living facilities and curbside at staffed business patios in Dublin, staged on the bed of a vehicle donated by Germain Honda of Dublin.

How curbside concerts work

Make a request

Pick a nominee in Dublin and write a heartfelt message that will be read to them during the show

We book a local artist

We organize requests in three to four-hour routes and book one of the area’s best artists for a mini curbside-to-curbside tour

They play for the special person you nominated

Artists arrive ready to relay your message and kindness, providing a personalized 15-minute performance that can be enjoyed from the safety of the recipient’s yard, porch or driveway
