Long’s Park Summer Music Series – July 2017

Now in its 55th season, the Summer Music Series is regarded as a top musical entertainment destination in one of the best outdoor venues in Central PA. These free concerts are made possible through the generosity of individuals and corporate partners. Proceeds from the Long’s Park Art Festival are the other important component to our funding process. People power pulls it all together! Through the efforts of hundreds of volunteers and guided by a dedicated Board of Directors, the Long’s Park Amphitheater Foundation is excited to offer these outstanding performances. Thank you for being a part of this wonderful community event.

Please bring your blankets and lawn chairs and picnic in the park or visit one of the food vendors. Long’s Park is an alcohol-free park.

Dale Watson

The Austin-based honky-tonker carries on in the tradition of Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson with his “Ameripolitan” brand of American roots music.
