In addition to funding provided annually by the City of Jamestown, these concerts are made available free to the public through the support of the following: AJ’s Texas Hots, Allen Park Women’s Club, Chautauqua Region Community Foundation, Fessenden, Laumer & DeAngelo; Lind Funeral Home, Local 134, American Federation of Musicians; Scandinavian Studies Program, Salon 1, The Resource Center, The United Arts Appeal of Chautauqua County Projects Pool Grant Program, and WCA Hospital.
As in previous years, members of the Allen Park Women’s Club will continue their tradition of providing coffee, fudge and other baked goods during all of the concerts. Proceeds from the concession sales will once again be donated by the Club for the continued maintenance and improvement of Allen Park.
All concerts are free to the public and everyone is urged to bring their lawn chairs, blankets or park their vehicles close by and listen to the music from the comfort of their car.
