The Marietta community will again be “dancing in the street” during the Glover Park Concert Series. The series features local and regional acts on the last Friday night, April through September (August date is the 4th Friday). The concerts are free but if you are looking for a “front-row seat,” a limited number of tables can be reserved for a fee. Table reservations are taken on a first come basis (and will sell out quickly) on the first working day of each month beginning at 8:00 a.m.
The concert lineup:
April 26 – KRP Band (Pop & rock)
May 31 – 7 Sharp 9 (Rock & Roll)
June 28 – Chicago Rewired (Chicago Tribute Band)
July 26 – The Tams (Carolina Beach Music)
August 23* – Mo’ Soul Band (R&B and Motown)
September 27 – Men In Blues (Classic Rock & Blues)
Blankets and lawn chairs may be set up in the park. Personal tables and plastic ground coverings are not permitted in the park, however, they may be set up on the street after 5:30 p.m. Bring a picnic dinner (beer & wine is permitted) or dine in one of the many fine restaurants located on the square.
Join others and participate in the table decorating contest sponsored by Coldwell Banker-Marietta West Cobb branch. The contest is held prior to each concert with the winner will take home a basket full of great gifts including tickets to the Studio Movie Grill and goodies from Zaxby’s. Registration is not required and it is free to participate. The winner will be announced prior to each concert.
Ann Miltiades is the featured artist for the concert series poster. She is a Marietta, Georgia native and received her Bachelor of Arts degree from LaGrange College. Ann retired after 40 years in the antique business and started oil painting, a dream she’d had for years. The spirituality of the objects and places that make up our daily lives is her inspiration, elevating the seemingly mundane into something beautiful. Ann currently has paintings in Piastra Restaurant on the Marietta Square. The painting is a permanent part of Mary Beth Sasser collection and was used by the 10 Women of Hope organization on the cover of notecards.
