Party in the Park will be back next summer, but it is going back to its original venue. The concert series will be held at the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Park, formerly called Manhattan Square Park.
The Party in the Park stage will be located near Court Street and audiences will enjoy plenty of shaded areas and be encouraged to bring a blanket to sit on the grass. An area will be set up to include food trucks, working artists and other activities.
Party in the Park began in 1997 at Manhattan Square Park and remained there until 2004, when it moved to the High Falls Festival Site. In 2008, the event outgrew High Falls and again relocated, this time to the Riverside Festival Site at the corner of Exchange Blvd. and Court St.
The 18th annual Party in the Park event dates will be Thursdays from June 19 through August 14. The lineup will be announced in early May.
