Allerton Park Concert Series Presents: Dennis Stroughmatt

Update 7/12: Due to lifted COVID-19 restrictions, reservations are no longer required to attend this concert. Thank you to everyone who participated in this extra safety precaution! Those who signed up for this event on or before July 12 will be entered in a special drawing to receive a gift card! Winners will be announced during the concert.

Enjoy live music, food, and fun this summer during our modified annual Concert Series presented by the U of I Community Credit Union! This year we are striving to provide the same lively, spirited, and entertaining Concert Series with a few updates to ensure the safety of our visitors. Experience a moment of “fun in the sun” on the Gate House Lawn as you safely relax, listening to tunes surrounded by the calm ambiance of the Park.

Join us for the Cajun/creole sounds of Dennis Stroughmatt and L’Esprit Creole. Dennis’ signature music stylings will “make your soul jump, your head spin, and your heart glad to know that it is still here”. Grab your blankets or lawn chairs and pick your perfect spot to sit back and take in the show.

Visit the Greenhouse Café or Just Bee Açaí for a bite to eat. Or, bring a meal/snacks from home. A cash bar will also be available (no outside alcohol, please).

A donation of $5/person or $10/family is suggested, and will be collected at the gate. Or, make your gift here.

COVID-19 safety guidelines:
– Masks are required by ALL individuals if unable to maintain 6 feet from others
– Remember to keep 6 feet between you and other guests.
