Upcoming Events

Parkapalooza 2021 is coming Thursdays starting July 8!

The City of Montpelier’s Community Services Department announces the return of Parkapalooza, Hubbard Park’s Free Summer Concert Series. This family-friendly, outdoor concert series will be held at the Tuning Forks Stage in Hubbard Park and will feature live music from talented local and regional bands. The events will be held every Thursday from 5:30-7:30 pm from July 8 to August 19, with music beginning at 6pm. The musical lineup includes:

  • 7/8: Barika 
  • 7/15: VT Bluegrass Pioneers
  • 7/22: The Renegade Groove
  • 7/29: Sabouyouma
  • 8/5: Nina Sklar and the Weather Birds
  • 8/12: High Summer
  • 8/19: Patti Casey and the Wicked Fine Players 

Each event will also feature the Park’s 100’ long slip ‘n slide (weather permitting), and plenty of space to roam and play outside in Hubbard Park. Parking is inside Hubbard Park, accessible via Winter St., Spring St., or Corse St. in Montpelier. Concert-goers are encouraged to walk or carpool when possible.  The events are offered free to the community, but donations will be accepted at various locations! 

Food vendors may be added at a later date, but as of this release, this year’s Parkapalooza is BYO everything, so bring whatever food and drink you need to keep yourself satisfied and consider these as “carry-in, carry-out” Park events. 

This year’s event is sponsored by the following local businesses: 

Presenting Sponsors: Caledonia Spirits Distillery, Community National Bank, Hunger Mountain Co-op, Isham-Berwick Insurance, Vermont State Employees Credit Union. 

Supporting Sponsors: AroMed, Central Vermont Chamber of Commerce, Montpelier Construction, Noyle Johnson Group, Onion River Outdoors, Sarducci’s Restaurant, Union Mutual Insurance and Vermont Compost. 

Now in its fourth year, Parkapalooza celebrates all that we love about Central Vermont --- family time outside, community and the arts, and it also draws visitors from around the state to come and enjoy our Capital City.
