Concerts, fireworks show is on this year in Plymouth

Music in Plymouth will be in-person this year.
Publish date:

A popular summer event in the western suburbs will be in-person this year instead of virtual. 

The City of Plymouth said Wednesday its 2021 Music in Plymouth will be held on Wednesday, July 7, at the Hilde Performance Center. 

"Due to the pandemic, last year’s Music in Plymouth was presented virtually, and organizers anticipated that this year’s event would be held online only as well. However, because of updated guidelines and restrictions, the Plymouth Civic League and the City of Plymouth are pleased to hold the event in-person for its 49th year," the city said. 

While this year's event will be in-person, it will be smaller than previous years. Many hands-on activities that have been at Music in Plymouth in the past won't be available, but there will be the crowd-favorite fireworks show to wrap up the night of music. 

Entertainment will be provided by Heart and Soul Drum Academy, Medicine Show Music Company, Malamanya and Ragamala Dance Company. 

Uptown Brass, which features Minnesota Orchestra musicians, will also perform. The full Minnesota Orchestra often performs at Music in Plymouth, with event organizers noting the full orchestra will return in 2022 for the event's 50th anniversary. 

Like in previous years, organizers say attendees cannot leave blankets, chairs or tarps on the grounds until after 7 a.m. on July 7. These rules have prompted the annual "running of the blankets" as people rush to claim the best spots for the event. 

Event organizers note they will monitor and follow guidance from the Minnesota Department of Health and will encourage attendees to practice patience and accommodate one another so everyone can enjoy the event. 

Limited concessions will be available, and eventgoers are encouraged to bring picnics to enjoy.
