The 34th annual DAC Sundays at Scioto summer concert series will take place on ten Sunday evenings, June 11 – July 30, 2017 in the Scioto Park amphitheater, 7377 Riverside Dr., in Dublin. Concerts showcase local and regional performing artists that include almost every musical taste, from reggae to jazz and traditional Celtic music to classic country. Concerts begin at 7 p.m. and conclude at approximately 8:30 p.m. each week. Blankets and lawn chairs are encouraged, and guests are invited to arrive early to choose their favorite spot. The concerts are free of charge and donations are graciously accepted.
The annual summer concert series is of historical significance to Dublin Arts Council, which was formed after an ad hoc committee brought the Columbus Symphony Orchestra to the dedication of Scioto Park in 1983. The park is also home to Leatherlips, the first public artwork of DAC’s Dublin Art in Public Places program. The 12-foot high native limestone sculpture of the Wyandot Indian Chief has overlooked the park’s amphitheatre since 1990.
The 34th annual DAC Sundays at Scioto summer concert series will be presented by Dublin Arts Council and supported by corporate contributions, federal and state arts funding, along with contributions of in-kind services and an annual endowment of hotel/motel tax from the city of Dublin.
2017 bands have been selected by a committee of the Dublin Arts Council board of directors and are currently being contracted. If you are a performing artist who is interested in applying to perform in 2018, details can be found here.
