Summertime Tradition in Carbondale Canceled

SIU News

The Sunset Concert Series, a summertime tradition in Carbondale for more than four decades, has been canceled for 2020.

The annual free concert series was canceled this year due to COVID-19 concerns.

Due to the uncertainty with restrictions, sponsors said it was best to cancel the entire series because the restrictions likely wouldn’t be lifted in time to allow for a true Sunset Concert experience.

This would have been the 42nd annual appearance of the free concerts.

Plans are already in the works to bring the concerts back for 2021.
