Concerts

Live music in the heart of Downtown Columbus! 

ABOUT CONCERTS

From folk rock to the Columbus Symphony Orchestra, Columbus Commons is the official Downtown home for concert fans this summer. We produce a musical mix of free shows and rent the park to others to produce a variety of ticketed events that equates to no shortage of concert activity at the Commons. Check out the lineup and join us at the city’s center!
