Fireside

 

Fireside is a free, outdoor concert series that began in 2011 with the simple concept of getting families to come out to a local park, unplug from technology and listen to live music gathered around a fire! 

 All ages are invited to enjoy an evening in a rustic setting to listen to live local music gathered around a couple of small campfires behind the reconstructed 1850’s Sniteman Cabin which is located at the back of the park behind the gardens. Concerts occur 7 – 9 PM every Thursday in October at Greenway Farm Park.  Bring your blankets and chairs, marshmallow roasting sticks and dancing shoes! The Greenway Farm Park is more rustic, without food vendors and the stage is located on the porch of the Sniteman Log Cabin behind the gardens. Pack your own picnic supper to enjoy during the concert.
