Summer Entertainment Series
Summer concerts are an American tradition. In the not-so-distant past, towns and villages across the nation boasted town bands and bandstands in the village square or the park at the center of town. Music was a catalyst, drawing young and old alike to come together as a community. Outdoors, in the long twilight of warm summer nights, the concerts marked a time to relax, share a picnic supper and catch up with friends and neighbors.
The Park Authority has adopted this summer staple from small-town America to orchestrate a renewed sense of community in Fairfax County. The line-up for the Park Authority includes a wide array of performances from classical to bluegrass and everything in between as well as children’s performances, music and dance from around the world and a drive-in movies.
The free performances and movies are possible thanks to a strong partnership between government and business to benefit the people they serve and are fully funded through private donations which pay for the technical support and performers fees. All other activities are implemented by the Friends Group combined of citizen volunteers who support the park and its programs.
We hope to see you this summer and encourage you to invite your friends or family to attend.
