Clarkdale’s 2018 Concerts in the Park Series announced

Originally Published: April 21, 2018 2:39 p.m.

Clarkdale Community Services has announced its 2018 Concerts in the Park series.

Concerts run throughout the summer months on Saturday evenings, are free to the public and are typically held at the Clarkdale Town Park. This year, however, there is a change in venue for the first two concerts due to the Clarkdale Town Park remediation project.

Aces N’ Eights will open the season on the Town’s newly renovated “View Deck” behind the Clark Memorial Clubhouse on May 19.

This space offers a beautiful view and room for over 1,000 attendees. The deck surface is concrete so visitors will want to bring chairs and/or something comfortable to sit on.

Sentimental Journey will also be performing at the “View Deck” on June 9 and is being sponsored by the Cottonwood-Clarkdale Lions Club. The Lions Club will be providing drinks and snacks at each of the concert events.

June 23rd will be a special event with Cattywampus and Frenz kicking off Clarkdale’s Town Park re-opening in conjunction with GHD, the general contractor for the remediation project. More information will follow regarding this event.

All remaining concerts will be performed from the Town Park Gazebo. There is a great line up of entertainment to choose from and we hope to see you there!
