Welcome to CHIRP!


Begins July 9, in Ballard Park at 7p.m. Pre-registration will be required, as will masks for all attendees

Registration for the Bumper Jacksons is now at capacity. Registration for the Klezmatics will be posted Friday by noon.

A beautiful Thursday, July 9 and we have a concert in the park at 7!!😊🎻🎷 two gates to the park will open at 6 for check in with mask and I.d. And you will be shown to an appropriate size and placed pod, depending on how seriously you want to listen vs. socialize. You can hear from anywhere in park and we welcome everyone. However, we appreciate those who want to chat sitting further back so those who are “concert” listeners can do so undisturbed up front. The handicap gate will be individually opened for those who have registered to park over by Ballard Green. All other gates will be locked and reopened for departure so that after 8 you may leave through anyone of them. The concert is at capacity. Registration maxed out on Monday. Registration for the klezmatics on July 14, will be open on Friday both with a link on this page and our website at chirpct.org. So music lovers❤️❤️❤️❤️we begin🎶🎶🎶🎶. Comply with the guidelines and more 🎶🪕🎸🎺🎷🥁🎶will follow!!!😷😷😷😷😷

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