Donate to a Series Now!


People listening to live music.Thanks to all 2021 Summer Entertainment Series Sponsors for bringing back the popular concerts and movies that attracted hundreds of attendees at many shows. Our neighbors needed this connection to community. We look forward to seeing you in Summer 2022!

Nearly 200 performances such as the Seldom Scene 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, Rutherford Park, and E. C. Lawrence Park. There are also programs each Wednesday morning at Frying Pan Farm Park.
