Summer Parks Series: Charlie: An evening of Motown and beach music, August 26 @ 5pm, Tanglewood

The Arts Council of Winston-Salem and Forsyth County’s 2018 Summer Park Series will include two events at Triad Park near Kernersville and three at Tanglewood Park in Clemmons.

The Summer Park Series has had two successful runs at Forsyth County’s two extraordinary parks and performance venues, Triad Park and Tanglewood Park. “Our parks are tremendous assets,” said David Plyler, Chair, Forsyth County Commissioners, “and we want residents of the county to know about them and use them.  Our collaboration with The Arts Council, which has found enthusiastic local sponsors to help defray expenses, has worked well, and we’re back this year with five free outstanding, family friendly performances.” Event sponsors include Publix Super Markets Charities, Kaplan Early Learning Company, AlphaBEST Education, and Salem Smiles.

All events, as well as parking, are free and family friendly. Attendees are encouraged to bring blankets or lawn chairs.  They may bring a picnic, and food trucks will be on site.  Refreshments such as soda, water, beer and wine are available with all proceeds supporting the Arts Council of Winston-Salem and Forsyth County. No outside alcohol is permitted.

Jim Sparrow, former President and CEO of The Arts Council, said, “The Summer Parks Series is one of the most rewarding ventures we have undertaken during my time here at The Arts Council.  We are working with County Commissioners who are dedicated to using county assets to the maximum and providing family friendly activities in our public parks for residents of Forsyth County.  We have been successful in finding sponsors who enthusiastically share their vision and, of course, we are grateful to them.  If you would like to make a donation to support this programming you can do so by texting PARKS to 1-844-544-7171.”
