Can we arrive early and leave our chairs and canopies to save a space?
Yes. You can set up your chairs early. However, you cannot reserve "areas" using caution tape, stakes, rope etc. out of consideration for your fellow concert goers.
Why are all the Concerts being held at Central Park?
Central Park is a great location for the Concerts with plenty of parking as well as a centralized location in the City. The park also features field lights, a feature that many appreciate when returning to their cars at night after the show.
Will there be food?
Yes. Food vendors will be at each Concert selling food. Be sure to bring your appetite as their products are sure to please the whole family!
Is alcohol allowed at the Concerts?
Alcohol is not allowed in City parks.
Are barbecues allowed at the Concerts?
Barbecues are not allowed in Central Park.
Are we allowed to smoke cigarettes?
No. There is a no smoking ordinance forbidding smoking in City parks.
Are large umbrellas & canopies allowed at the Concerts?
We ask that all umbrellas and canopies be taken down at the start of the Concert. As the Concerts are now beginning at 7:00 p.m., it should not be too hot at that time.
Do the Concerts in the Park help outside organizations hold fundraisers?
Due to the contract with our vendors and our Sponsors, the City cannot allow outside organizations to sell food or hold any other type of fundraiser at the event.
Do the Concerts in the Park ever have opening acts, such as dance teams or cheer teams?
There are no opening acts at the City's Concerts in the Park. Due to the timing of the event there is little time between sound check and the beginning of the performance to have an opening dance or cheer performance.
