9-8-2018 Sweetbriar Rose!

Sep 3, 2018 by

Saturday weather update: We are ON for tonight, with the forecast calling for several rain-free hours!

For the final performance in our free and family-friendly 2018 Arts in the Park, we are delighted to present Sweetbriar Rose! They’re a band of rootsy, thorny, rose-hipped gypsies who give dynamic performances of original music. They mix solid Americana tinged with Eastern European folk and jazz, whispers and shouts, foot-stomping, crooning and wailing.

Arts in the Park

Saturday, September 8
6:00-7:30 pm – new time this year!
Glen Providence Park Stage, State Street, Media
Rain date: Sunday, September 9s


Bring a blanket or chair, and relax on the lawn by the historical stage for an evening concert! After the performance, head into Media for dinner and shopping, just 2 blocks away on State Street. As with all of our events, this performance is free, family-friendly, and open to the public.


Thank you:

  • Concert Sponsor Seven Stones Gallery offers an extensive selection of both traditional and contemporary jewelry, pottery, art and Native American crafts including a large array of Zuni hand carved fetishes. And it’s located just over 2 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.
  • Delaware County Parks & Recreation has cared for Glen Providence Park since its creation on Halloween, 1935!
  • 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.


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.
