Music in the Park Returns to Honesdale for 2021 Season

The Wayne County Creative Arts Council is pleased to announce their summer schedule of concerts in Honesdale’s Central Park. This 53rd annual event offers up a new and different lineup of performers over seven weeks of biweekly outdoor concerts, featuring something for nearly every musical taste. Check out the tunes of a band from the Nashville area, the WCCAC debut of a contemporary blues legend, unique high-energy jazz, and of course, your favorites from past summers. Tubby’s Food Truck will be on hand, with many treats to enjoy while listening to the concert. Concerts take place select Mondays and Thursdays beginning at 7:30PM, through July 29th. Come as you are – bring a blanket or chair – and prepare to relax and enjoy some great entertainment this summer!

“Having a year off has made us much more appreciative of live music,” said local musician, teacher, and music store owner Dave Figura, who books the acts and runs the sound board during performances. “We’re very excited about the new groups, and can’t wait to see everyone at the park again!”

Thursday, July 22 will bring back the stupendous high-energy musicianship of the Gypsy Jazz Quintet.

In another major WCCAC debut, contemporary blues legend Clarence Spady will bring his unique style to the Fasshauer Stage on Monday, July 26th.

The season ends on a high note on Thursday, July 29th, with a performance by The Old Time Fiddlers, led by Steve Jacobi. This can’t-miss concert is always a highlight of the season!

Mitzi Kielar, Project Manager for the WCCAC, is excited about this season. “I’m so looking forward to continuing this Wayne County tradition of music in the Park and seeing everyone again,” she says.

CDC guidelines will be followed with masks required and spacing of family groups in the Park. All concerts will begin at 7:30 PM. In case of inclement weather, concerts may be moved to other locations. There is no admission charge to the Summer Festival events, but free-will donations are gratefully accepted. Refreshments will be available for purchase from Tubby’s Food Truck, but attendees can also bring their own food. (No alcohol or smoking, please.) Bring a blanket or chair for seating.
