RAIN DATE: 7-17-2016 John Flynn & 5th Anniversary Celebration!
For the second in four concerts in our 2016 Summer Performance Series, Friends of Glen Providence Park is delighted to present activist-songwriter John Flynn! He writes songs on behalf of “the lost and the lonely, the shackled and scarred.” A “quintessential folk singer,” Flynn has been compared Woody Guthrie, Phil Ochs, and Kris Kristofferson. He will perform a set for kids, and a set for adults.
Afternoon Concert in the Park
Sunday, July 17
Glen Providence Park Stage, State Street, Media
Rain date: Sunday, July 17
UPDATE – RAIN DATE! After an initially clear forecast today, the forecast for the next few hours is not great, with thunderstorms rolling through – so we are using our Sunday rain date!!!
We will also celebrate the 5th Anniversary of Friends of Glen Providence Park! We held our first meeting on July 14, 2011 at Seven Stones Cafe in Media – appropriately enough, they are the sponsor for this concert. Join us as we celebrate our first five years with a concert and anniversary cake!
Bring a blanket or chair, and relax on the lawn by the historical stage to enjoy a late afternoon concert! After the concert, head into Media for dinner and shopping, just 2 blocks away on State Street. As with all of our events, this concert is free and open to the public.
On your way to dinner, check out the Opening Reception for Philadelphia-based muralist and paper cutout artist Joe Boruchow – that’s 6:00-8:00 at the Media Arts Council Gallery, next to Sterling Pig by the park entrance!
- Concert Sponsor Seven Stones Cafe is one of the most inviting spots in town! With great coffee (and artfully prepared lattes!), Seven Stones has delicious offerings to enjoy over good conversation, a meeting, or a book. And the family-owned cafe is located just over 4 blocks from the entrance to the park!
- Concert Series Sponsor Media Recreation Board does so much for Media – including summer camp for kids, movies in Barrall Field, the Annual July 4th Celebration, and the Great Media Garage Sale Days.
- Concert Series Sponsor Media Rotary Foundation has been supporting the community by contributing to worthwhile organizations, groups and projects since 1983.
- Delaware County Parks & Recreation has cared for Glen Providence Park since its creation in 1935, and their support makes these concerts possible.
If the weather is questionable, we will post on Facebook and on our website by noon Saturday whether we will use our Sunday rain date.
