Revamped for 2012, the Greencastle Civic League's annual summer celebration of music at Robe-Ann Park returns on Tuesday, June 5.
ParkFest will run for 10 Tuesday evenings at the Robe-Ann Park Bandshell, featuring a variety of local acts as well as a number of new theme nights.
Among the special evenings are the all-ages cash prize karaoke with PB&Jam on July 10, as well as teen night featuring Katie Krauter and Translucent Vertigo on July 31.
Other special programs include Songs of Faith Night on Aug. 14 and a welcome to the DePauw University class of 2016 with Brian Keith Wallen and WAR RADIO on Aug. 21.
Bobbie Lancaster and Rachel Stewart are co-chairing the ParkFest committee this year, and they have revamped the program. Each night will feature at least two acts, as opposed to the traditional one-act nights.
Even bigger are the "Super Tuesdays" on June 19 and July 17, featuring a tripleheader of acts.
Food vendors will also be on site for the shows.
The opening night of ParkFest will feature Tim Brickley and VanTerry at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 5.
The celebration will continue at 6:30 p.m. each Tuesday, excluding July 24 and Aug. 7, before concluding on Aug. 21.
ParkFest is made possible by the Civic League with additional sponsorship from DePauw University and Greencastle Friends of the Park Association, with special thanks to MCP Copy Center and Greg's Audio Support.
