UPMC Sunset Music Series w/ Max Garcia Conover

  • Presque Isle State Park Peninsula Drive Erie, PA United States

Each summer, Beach 1 comes alive for six Wednesday evening concerts. Against the backdrop of a beautiful Lake Erie sunset, the UPMC Sunset Music Series brings the best regional music — at no cost — to park visitors. Concerts begin at 5:30pm and end near sunset.

The Presque Isle Partnership is proud to make the UPMC Sunset Music Series a more functional, family- friendly and accessible concert venue:

1) Stage placement will be located 130 yards east of its location in previous years. Its new location consists of a wider and more level beach, will be centered with the parking lot and in- line with the restrooms and pavilion at Beach 1.

2) A 300 yard section of Old Lake Road running parallel to the stage/viewing area will be barricaded off, thus, eliminating risk to pedestrians crossing Old Lake Road to access the beach.

3) The Partnership has purchased 200’ x 6.5’ of roll-out Rec-Paths to be laid on top of the sand each week. This revolutionary new product is made from 100% recycled plastic and allows wheelchair access over sand.

4) Food, refreshments, ice-cream, kettle corn and roasted nuts will be available for purchase at each concert. Alcohol is prohibited on Presque Isle State Park. Jen Dennehy will be teaching concert attendees how to hula-hoop at each concert. The Partnership is also adding face- painting and corn hole sets for visitors’ enjoyment.

Attendees are encouraged to support the Park by purchasing Sunset Raffle tickets for chances to win gas cards, Bayfront Grille certificates, Connie’s Ice-cream certificates and more! $2ea.; 3 for $5; or 8 for $10.
