COMMUNITY SERVICES

2018 CONCERTS IN THE PARK


Thank you for your interest to perform in Clarkdale’s Concerts in the Park.   To give you a little history

and background…

 

The Town of Clarkdale has been providing enjoyable free concerts since 2001. Every concert is geared

to provide an evening of family fun for all ages to enjoy. Concerts are performed from the Clarkdale Town

Park Gazebo located at 1001 Main Street and are FREE to the public. Our concert series is held from the

beginning of June through September and performances are two (2) hours; with a 15 minute break at the

half-way mark.  Since the economic downturn in 2008, the concerts have been fully funded from the 50/50

raffles held at each concert.  These funds cover the cost of the performers along with operations so it is

important for us to keep the costs as minimal as possible.

 

Concerts are well attended, drawing around 400+ people in our small community of 4,000 with our highest

attendance being about 1,000.

 

Due to the popularity of our concerts, the high number of bands that want to perform and the limited number

of concerts offered each season, the selection process was formalized in 2015.

 

The 2018 concert dates have been scheduled.  They are as follows:

JUNE

·         Saturday, June 09, 2018

·         Saturday, June 23, 2018

JULY
