The Farnsworth Art Museum’s dynamic membership group the [Collective] will present a summer dance party Saturday night, July 22, on Museum Street. Bash LITE: Under the Tent, featuring funk band Con Brio, will run from 8 p.m. to midnight under a 200-foot tent raised over the Farnsworth’s Museum Street parking lot.

Led by the magnetic Con Brio, a seven-piece Bay Area funk and psychedelic-soul band and the network of local makers, all are invited to celebrate the height of Maine’s summer by literally dancing in the street. Participants should expect backflips, prizes, silliness and the unexpected.

Tickets for the 21-and-older event are $45. For more information, or to purchase a ticket, visit
