We are excited to bring live entertainment back to our beloved amphitheater this summer, and we're committed to keeping a healthy environment for our audience, entertainers, and staff members. Due to the enhanced safety measures, there will be modifications to our usual operations, and we ask for your patience and understanding as guidelines and protocols continue to evolve. Some of the changes are as follows:
Masks are not required for fully vaccinated individuals. Unvaccinated individuals should continue to wear masks indoors and while entering, exiting, and walking around the amphitheater.
Hand sanitizing stations will be located at all entrances, and restrooms will be cleaned more frequently.
Each group/party should keep a six-foot distance from others.
There will be no concession stands. You may still bring your own snacks and beverages.
The schedule is available on this page; no brochure will be printed.
Free concerts in Rose Tree Park's scenic outdoor amphitheater first began in 1975 as part of a two-year Bicentennial Celebration, and four decades later, The Summer Festival concert series remains a popular local tradition. The series runs from June to August and provides residents many opportunities to take in top-notch entertainment of all kinds, from Classical to Cajun, Motown to Broadway, Doo Wop to Rock and Pop, and everything in between. Showtime is 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday through Sunday evenings, plus two morning children's shows at 10:00 a.m.
The Summer Festival concerts are brought to you by Delaware County and the generous support of our sponsors (see below). Admission and parking are free. The audience should bring blankets and chairs for seating. Picnics are welcome. Please remember that alcoholic beverages are prohibited throughout the park, and for everyone's safety and comfort, pets and smoking must remain outside the amphitheater. Guests with leashed dogs may enjoy the shows from the periphery.
There are no rain dates for Summer Festival concerts that are cancelled due to inclement weather. Cancellation decisions are made right up until show time. At that time, there will be a recorded message on the parks phone (610-891-4455) indicating the show is cancelled. Rain in the hours preceding the show does not mean the show will be cancelled. Every effort is made to ensure the safety of the audience. If a thunderstorm takes place, the concert will be ended.
