Paper Mill Island Summer Concerts

Last month I attended my first concert at Paper Mill Island in Baldwinsville (Martin Sexton and Ani Difranco).  Having grown up in the small town of Baldwinsville, I was pleasantly surprised to hear that one of my old favorites, Ani Difranco, was performing here!  My sisters, brothers, husband and I brought our lawn chairs and settled in for a fun evening of entertainment.  The music was impressive and the setting was perfect.  The amphitheater is just the right size for an open-air venue — not too cramped, but small enough to feel intimate.  With the Seneca River on either side of us and the stars above our heads, we reveled in the beautiful CNY summer weather.  

Paper Mill Island is a wonderful place to enjoy summertime.  There are many free concerts throughout the summer with occasional fireworks too.  It’s at least worth checking out the calendar of events to see if there’s an upcoming concert that interests you.  You might be pleasantly surprised like I was…and it might just be free!  

Paper Mill Island is located at Lock 24 in Baldwinsville.  Concerts are held at the amphitheater on Spensieri Ave behind The Red Mill Inn.
