While the history of Mesa has seen many different phases, it is quickly becoming a destination for the arts and entertainment events. Throughout the year, festivals of many different types bring East Valley residents out to take in the great art, music and cuisine in the heart of downtown Mesa. Continuing in the vein, the Out to Lunch Concert Series is coming back to the Mesa Arts Center for another season of free entertainment. Here’s where you can find it.
A favorite among Mesa activities.
Starting on January 21st and running through March 24th, the Thursday afternoon concerts at the Mesa Arts Center will resume for the Spring season, providing free entertainment during the lunch hour to patrons. The concerts begin at 12:30 p.m. and take place in the Wells Fargo Garden at the Mesa Arts Center. During the shows, Life of the Party Catering will be bringing a selection of hot and cold lunches as well as beverages and desserts.
