Arts in the Park

Arts in the Park is our summer concert series that brings live music to you every Friday throughout the summer. For more than 40 years, the Manhattan Parks and Recreation Department has sponsored, organized, and produced free weekly outdoor concerts for the Manhattan community. We offer a variety of musical genres, including country, folk, Americana, rock and roll, alt rock, soul, and funk. Shows start at 8 p.m. at the Larry Norvell Band Shell in City Park, unless otherwise noted.
