Movies & Music in the Park 2022 @ Parfet Park
Jul 15 @ 7:00 pm

Join us this summer for three family-fun-filled nights of Movies & Music in the Park! This year we’re doing it a little differently. Instead of packing all three nights into one month, we’re spreading them out on July 15, August 12 and September 9.

We’re kicking things off in a big way on July 15 with a performance by Studio Colombia dance group and the exciting instrumental fusion guitar music of El Javi. The evening culminates in a screening of the hit movie, Encanto!

Each week, the bands begin performing at 7 p.m. and the featured movie will start rolling at dusk, generally around 8:30 p.m. The movies are shown on a giant screen under the stars.

Bring blankets or low-slung chairs, and make yourself comfortable! If you need to sit up high in a regular height chair, however, please be courteous of those sitting on the ground, and keep to the edges of the crowd. We’ve dedicated the front area to blankets only, so please look for the signs. Come early and bring a picnic dinner, or enjoy food and drinks from local vendors.

Dogs are welcome, just keep them on a leash. And please leave your adult beverages and cigarettes/vapes at home–this is an alcohol-free and tobacco-free event. Regular park rules apply.

See our Movies & Music in the Park page for a full line-up of coming attractions this summer!
