Warsaw Summer Concert Series Cancelled

Cancelled stamp

WARSAW – The Warsaw Parks and Recreation Department and the City of Warsaw have cancelled the three largest summer concerts scheduled for 2020.

This includes the “Rockin’ Concert for Riley,” “Country Concert for St. Jude Kids,” and the “Blues and BBQ Concert”. This could also apply to other concerts scheduled for Friday nights throughout the summer, though an announcement on those will be held until closer to each concert.

The following letter was released as part of the announcement:

“Dear Residents,

The Mayor of Warsaw, along with the support of Warsaw City Council, announced Monday evening that all City buildings and rental facilities will be closed to the public through at least Wednesday, April 29 to try to contain the fast-moving coronavirus pandemic.

For this reason, the Warsaw Parks and Recreation Department has decided to cancel ALL activities and programs for the next 8 weeks. This includes Imagination Station, Brushes ‘n Bunnies, Sensory Egg Hunt, and Princess Tea Party.

This also includes cancelling the Rockin’ for Riley Rock Concert, Blues & BBQ Festival, & Country Concert for St. Jude concerts for 2020. Note: Announcements for the 2020 Central Park Concert Series concerts held in the Central Park Plaza will be made closer to each date.

While we hate to cancel some of our most popular events, the health and safety of our residents and staff are our top priority. We will make an announcement when activities resume.
