Hayward Odd Fellows Sycamore Lodge #129 has partnered with Hayward Area Recreation District (H.A.R.D). and local non-profits since 2010 to offer a series of Free Summer Concerts on Sundays at Hayward Memorial Park, 24176 Mission Blvd. The program is free to the public. A tot lot is nearby, as is a lovely hiking trail, indoor pool (the Hayward Plunge), tennis courts and plenty of free parking.
Attendees enjoy a variety of music such as Mariachi, Blues, Big Band & Jazz, Original Feel Good Music, and Rock ‘n’ Roll. Everyone is invited to bring a blanket or lawn chair and enjoy an afternoon in the park with Music, Art, Dance & Chess. Kids of all ages are welcome to create chalk art, and chess players can enjoy a game or two with Sycamore’s resident Chess Master.
Each event features one of our area’s fine 501c3 non-profit groups, which do much of the heavy lifting in the community. All donations received go to the featured 501c3 non-profit of the day and are tax deductible. Musicians, artists, dancers and chess players all donate their time for these events. Over $14K. has been raised for local non-profits between 2010-2016.
