This is a completely open air venue in a public park. The park has been divided into "pods" that range from 8 ft. to 10 ft. spacing around each seating area. Seating pods are identified by small flags on the lawn and with sidewalk chalk on the pavement.

We encourage people to come in groups of 4 if possible. We will trust guest judgement on larger groups and can merge pods with discretion. Please only attend this event with people whom you are comfortable sitting close to.

The back sections are ideal for couples in chairs. The grass and front seats are ideal for groups. Bring your own chairs and blankets to be comfortable.


In the event of rain or extreme weather, the event will be canceled by 3pm on Wednesday 9/23. Follow BCA and BPRW’s social media for updates.
