 CHIRP 2016


CHIRP Concerts are Tuesdays from Memorial Day through Labor Day and Tues. & Thurs. in Jul & Aug.

CHIRP is a series of free Tuesday and Thursday night summer concerts in Ballard Park located in the heart of Ridgefield. It also sponsors the U.S. Military Band concerts held several times a year at the H.S. auditorium.  CHIRP is totally funded by individual and foundation donations as well as contributions from local businesses. It is co-sponsored by the town of Ridgefield through its Parks & Rec. Dep’t.  and The Ridgefield Press. Concerts begin at 7p.m. Please understand that we love dogs BUT they are not permitted in Ballard Park.

CHIRP’s mission is to present to its audience music and professional musicians who would not normally otherwise have a venue in the Ridgefield/Danbury area.  It’s main goals are to build community through shared experience as well as to enhance Ridgefield’s reputation as a “Destination”

Please either Click above or Send your Contribution to CHIRP to make our entire season possible: Town Hall, 400 Main St. Ridgefield, CT 06877

The Acoustic Celebration: To hear wonderful, affordable music (no ticket more than $25) in an intimate setting during the other seasons of the year, check out the non-profit singer/songwriter series,

    Are the concerts just for residents of Ridgefield?

    • mannersb said:

      Concerts are open to everyone.

        I could have sworn the other day your website posted that the concert was at the Ridgefield Playhouse. Are you saying that if the concert is moved indoors that it will be at the 195 Danbury Road Parks and Rec facility? On google maps it shows a senior center there.

      No tickets for any concert. All concerts are free but we do pass the bucket in the park and ask that you contribute what you can to help us keep this series alive

  4. Good morning,
    As a frequent visitor to the website & the concerts, is there any way to remove the confused posts (above) about Roosevelt Dime, etc. from 2 years ago?
    A supporter.

      If you have refreshed the website, you should now have the schedule for 2015 events and Roosevelt Dime should only be there under CHIRP 2014. hope this helps.
