Pedestrians have right of way on all roads/walkways in the park.

• CANCELLATIONS DUE TO INCLEMENT WEATHER: In the event of thunderstorms, we must cancel or postpone concerts due to safety concerns (usually by 3 p.m. the day of the concert; you will be notified). We have one date at the end of the concert season reserved as a make up date. In the event of an individual concert cancellation, all vending fees paid in advance are non-refundable and will become tax-deductible donations to benefit the Park (you will be receipted). We will do our utmost to reschedule with you for another concert if you are available, or put you on our rain date (August 15).
