Monongalia County Parks & Recreation Summer Concert Series

All concerts are scheduled for 6:30p-8:30p.  Bring a blanket or camp chairs, let the kids run up and down the hill, and enjoy the music! Kids of all ages can pop bubbles, wave streamers, and dance with hula hoops to add to the dancing fun! For each concert, we schedule a food truck, however, coolers are welcome. 

Tickets are $5/person. Children 6 and under get in free. Well-behaved pets are welcomed and must remain on a leash. The show will go on in the rain, but it is up to the band to keep the music outside or relocate to the Dining Hall.
