The Park Authority, in partnership with the Fairfax County Park Foundation and generous sponsors presents a summer-long series of shows, concerts and movies. These concerts, held in local parks are the perfect place to bring a picnic dinner, blankets and lawn chairs to enjoy the best local and regional entertainers. Best of all, they are close to home and absolutely free to attendees thanks to sponsors!

Seldom Scene. Nearly 200 performances such as the Seldom Scene (pictured) range from children's puppet shows to big band, jazz, bluegrass, rock, classical and world music. For those who love a classic, enjoy a nostalgic return to the good old days and the drive-in theatre where you can view movies from the comfort of your car.

The Summer Entertainment Series includes the special Arts in the Parks that introduces children to live, quality entertainment in an outdoor setting. These performances are held every Saturday morning at outdoor amphitheaters in Burke Lake Park, Mason District Park and E. C. Lawrence Park. There are also programs each Wednesday morning at Frying Pan Farm Park.
