Welcome to CHIRP 2021!

Very dear CHIRP friends and supporters, 2021 is going to be “a very good year.”After managing to present 12 outdoor events last summer notwithstanding all the protocols we had to put in place to comply with Covid-19 safety requirements, we are preparing for a full June, July and August of Tuesday and Thursday concerts. In coming months expect to see postings as we confirm dates for Christine Ohlman | Beehive Queen, David Myles, CJ Chenier, Bumper Jacksons , Jamie McLean Band…and many more


This year we don’t know yet if pre-registration will be required for concerts. We will keep you posted.

All attendees must be wearing a mask to enter Ballard Park on the night of the show.

CHIRP is a series of free Tuesday and Thursday night summer concerts in Ballard Park located in the heart of Ridgefield.

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”
