This summer’s Arts in the Park was made possible by funding from Project Stream, a grant initiative of the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts that is regionally administered by the Greater Philadelphia Cultural Alliance. Additional support for Project Stream is provided by PECO.
Thank you to our concert sponsors Media Recreation Board and West End Walk, restaurant sponsors Seven Stones Cafe, Sterling Pig Brewery, Shere-e-Punjab, and Diego’s Cantina, and to Delaware County Parks & Recreation, without whose support these concerts would not be possible.
- Free and family-friendly!
- Performances are at the Glen Providence Park Stage, downhill from the main entrance on State Street in Media.
- Rain dates are the Sunday after each scheduled performance. If the rain date is used, the decision will be posted by 12:00 noon Saturday on our website and Facebook.
- Seating is on the lawn – bring your blanket or chair, and perhaps bug spray!
- There is a parking lot at the State Street entrance and along State Street and West Street.
- We encourage you to walk or take public transportation: the main entrance is just 2 blocks from the end of the Media trolley line, or less than a .6 mile walk from the Media train station.
More details on each performance coming soon!
