HAVE FUN, BE SAFE, AND BE CONSIDERATE OF OTHERS:

Our concert series has always been a family-oriented program. Please be considerate of your neighbors, so that everyone may enjoy the music and the natural surroundings. If you smoke, make sure your second-hand smoke doesn’t bother anyone else. We ask that you keep children in sight at all times, so their safety is assured, and so their play will not disturb others. Remember that some of our guests may be afraid of dogs, so please observe our park leash and litter pick-up laws, and keep pets under your control at all times. Spectators are encouraged to bring flashlights for added safety. Bring a blanket or lawn chair and a few friends and join us for our weekly open-air summer concert series at Deer Path Park in Readington Township, NJ.

ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES ARE NOT PERMITTED

POSSIBLE CLOSURES DUE TO AVAILABLE SPACE IN DEER PATH PARK

Our stage is situated in front of a large, open field to accommodate lawn chairs and blankets for our audience. Additional fields will be made available for use as parking lots for each performance. There are evenings when we may need to close Deer Path Park, simply because we might fill lawn seating and/or parking spaces.

There are four very good reasons:

  1. You’ll get to visit with your friends;
  2. Fewer cars help reduce your time needed for parking before and after the concert, due to traffic;
  3. More people can enjoy the concert and
  4. If we all pitch in we can save some fossil fuel and lessen the amount of pollutants entering our air!

July 25- Amish Outlaws
The Amish practice a tradition called “Rumspringa” (running around) at 16 they can live free of the strict Amish code before deciding if they want to be baptized into the Amish church. Surprisingly, virtually all of the youths return. But sometimes they don’t. Four of the original six members were born and raised in Lancaster, PA and had a strict Amish upbringing. No electricity from land lines, no alcohol, no musical instruments, but their spirits were too wild for the Amish lifestyle. Once they trampled in the Devil’s Playground, there was no turning back. Since Rumspringa, the Amish Outlaws have become well acclimated to the pleasures and vices of the modern world… music, most of all. From Johnny Cash, JayZ, Lady Gaga to Bon Jovi & Elvis they will entertain you! ultraartists.com/slippery-when-wet/
