Each event will be announced in more detail before both here on the website, and on Facebook. We will also be getting flyers out around town in the near future!

What’s different in 2018?

This year, the Arts Council board of directors wants bring back many of your favorites, while at the same time doing our part to do more to highlight more local talents. In addition to featuring more local acts, we Corry Community Foundationalso hope to broaden our audience by introducing a just a few contemporary rock shows. We have asked that the bands keep the music lyrically appropriate for all ages, but we also understand this type of music in general might not be for everyone. To make it easier to avoid shows you may not have interested in, we have intentionally put those shows on the third Thursday of each month, which we’re calling Third Thursday Rock shows.

Some acts are still being worked out; the “TBA” dates below will be announced once we have more information and are ready to unveil a few more surprises!.

  1. I would like to have u guys get either still waiting a church band or rick McGhee and the road house rockers

    1. These are great suggestions, thank you! We are always looking for feedback like this! I believe the current “TBA” slots are already in talks, but if any of those fall through we’ll have some options to look in to – and we can consider them for next year, or even OTHER Arts Council events that aren’t specifically Thursday in the Park.

      Thank you so much!
