Updated at 12:20 p.m. on 6/23/2023 — The Mosaic Live kick-off event on Saturday has been canceled due to forecasted inclement weather, according to Providence District Supervisor Dalia Palchik. The series will instead begin on July 1 with the Munit Mesfin Band.

Earlier: Live music will take over Strawberry Lane at Mosaic District this summer.

A new “Mosaic Live” concert series is set to kick off on Saturday, June 24 at 5 p.m. It’s the latest addition to the Fairfax County Park Authority’s annual summer entertainment lineup, which is underway with 118 live performances scheduled at 20 different venues around the county.

The Mosaic Live kickoff event will be headlined by Groovalicious, a band that pays tribute to disco and other 1970s music. The Vienna Singing Princesses will serve as an opening act, with local elected officials expected to attend, according to the Providence District office, which helped organize the series.

Future concerts will begin at 6 p.m. every Saturday through Aug. 19:

  • July 1: Munit Mesfin Band
  • July 8: Los Three Baritones
  • July 15: School of Rock from Vienna
  • July 22: Brian Cunningham Project
  • July 29: Centro Cultural Bolivia
  • Aug. 5: Patrick Alban & Noche Latina
  • Aug. 12: Tobago Bay Calypso Band
  • Aug. 19: Ocho de Bastos

(Correction: This story initially said future concerts would begin at 6:30 p.m.) 

Providence District Supervisor Dalia Palchik’s office is also bringing back Nottoway Nights, a concert series that will take place on Thursdays at Nottoway Park (9601 Courthouse Road) in Vienna.

Nottoway Nights concerts will begin on July 6 and continue through Aug. 24, running from 7:30-8:30 p.m.

Last year, the Providence District office and FCPA tried out a Global Music & Dance series at the Graham Road Community Building, though the program isn’t returning this year.

The full Summer Entertainment Series schedule can be found on the park authority’s website.
