What is Parkapalooza?
Parkapalooza is Montpelier’s summer concert series hosted by the Montpelier Parks and Trees Department each summer. Playing live at the Tuning Forks Soundstage at the Old Shelter in Hubbard Park, Parkapalooza is a family friendly concert series featuring live music, a giant slip ‘n slide, lawn games, and a huge open space for people to gather and listen to live music. Held on Thursday evenings starting at 5:30pm, this concert series is a great plan for fun times throughout the summer. Parkapalooza celebrates all that we love about Central Vermont— family time outside, community and the arts, so join us!
Parkapalooza is cancelled for Thursday August 10th due to thunderstorms forecasted in downtown Montpelier. Please join us for Thursday, August 17th at 5:30pm for Kerubo live at the Tuning Forks Soundstage in Hubbard Park.
