About the Oval

Out to Lunch on the Worcester CommonThe Oval in Summer Following a smashing success for the second straight winter skating season, it's time to turn up the heat and turn up the music! It's time to go Out to Lunch at the Oval!

The popular Out to Lunch Summer Concert Series & Farmers' Market kicks off on Thursday, June 19th - running for ten consecutive Thursdays through August 21st. Series will feature a dynamic line up of live entertainment, farmers market, food vendors, crafters, demonstrations and more.
