Neighborhood Nights 2019

Wednesday, May 29, 2019
06:30 PM - 08:00 PM


Listen to music in your neighborhood park!

For over 30 years, we've been bringing the best local musicians to just about every park in Urbana! Bring your lawn chair or even a picnic dinner and spend the evening with us in a lovely park setting. Each park features a different performance, all playing the very best music from folk to soul and rock to bluegrass. Except for July 3, the rain date is the following night in the case of inclement weather. Call the Urbana Park District Rainout Line after 4pm for postponement information: 217-367-9575, extension 21, or check our Facebook page.

Each Neighborhood Night features:

  • The very best local musicians
  • Free popcorn and lemonade
  • Fun activities
  • Meet City of Urbana officials and talk to them about your neighborhood

Nature Play at Neighborhood Nights: Discover nature right outside your door! Can you identify the critters you see in your local park? Join the Neighborhood Nights Naturalist for some fun playing with nature's "loose parts". Join us and be entered to win prizes!
