Woodbridge — which always has one of the best lineups of free, outdoor summer shows in New Jersey — is planning to go ahead with its shows this year, starting in early July, with strict social distancing and crowd limits as dictated by the state.
The concerts will take place at Woodbridge High School, and the grounds will be lined in order to manage the distancing.
Wednesday shows will be devoted to female artists, in celebration of the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment.
Here is the schedule as it currently stands, with additions to come:
