Party at the Park in Prairie du Rocher, IL

This summer event held in the beautiful commuity park in historic Prairie du Rocher, showcases totally different styles of music every other Wednesday night for a total of six show each season.  The 2016 season will begin on June 8th of 2016 and will be the 10th season for this popular event.  Hosting anywhere from 150-400 people per show, the event is free to the public, although donations are gratefully accepted to help support the program. 

Refreshments are always available with a standing menu, but park board members add a "specialty item" to each show that relates in some way to the style of music being played. 

A VIP area is also set up for one lucky fan to enjoy at each show.  This person receives "luxury" seating and free, delivered refreshments all evening for themselves and a guest of their choice.  At the end of the season, the VIP seating equipment is raffled off to a lucky winner.  Also raffled off at the last show of each season is a beautiful handmade quilt provided by the local quilting club, the Stitch On Quilting Guild.

In honor of the 10th anniversary of the program, musical guests for the 2016 season will be chosen by the fans through an all-star ballot of all previous performers.  Every performance will be an all star performance!
