Village of Orland Park Announces Summer Event Lineup

Lineup includes the announcement of concert series

 

Orland Park, IL (April 17, 2020)- Following the announcement of the Opening Up America Again plan by the White House, the Village of Orland Park proudly unveils its lineup of events for the 2020 Summer season.

 

“It’s time to look toward the future and the beginning of the return to normalcy here in Orland Park,” said Mayor Keith Pekau. “Although we continue to monitor the current environment and plan accordingly, we also have to plan for a phased reopening of the local economy, getting people back to work, and enjoying all of the great things that Orland Park has to offer.”

 

The Village has a full schedule of events planned beginning with the Memorial Day Ceremony on May 25 at the Ara Pace: Place of Peace Memorial at Village Center.

 

Market at the Park returns on June 4th and runs through July 23 at Crescent Park.

 

The Village’s annual Fourth of July celebration kicks-off with the annual Veterans Liberty Run & Walk on July 3 and concludes with a concert and fireworks at Centennial Park on July 4.

 

The Taste of Orland Park will be held the weekend of July 31 through August 2 at Village Center.

 

“The Village of Orland Park is a strong community and you can see evidence of that at our annual events,” said Trustee Jim Dodge. “I look forward to attending this summer’s events with my family and as a part of our great community.”

 

In addition to the regular roundup of events, a three-concert series at Centennial Park West is planned for the summer season.

 

“I remember when we first envisioned the great outdoor space at Centennial Park West,” said Dodge. “The idea was simple; we wanted to create the perfect space for outdoor concerts in Orland Park…essentially, a Ravinia South.”

 

“In 2011, an idea became reality and we held our first concert in 2011 at Orland Park’s Centennial Park West,” Dodge recalled. “Many concerts have been held at this location and we think you’ll be excited to hear about what is in store this year.”


“We are very excited to announce this year’s Centennial Park West Concert series,” said Pekau. “We have three fantastic concerts, featuring three different musical genres with something for everyone.”

 

On July 18, the series kicks off with a full night of legendary rock and roll classics by the original bands including Tommy James & the Shondells along with Ides of March featuring

Jim Peterik, The Buckinghams, Crayan’ Shames, New Colony Six and Shadows of Knight.

 

“On August 8, we welcome to Orland Park Classic Rock headliners Blue Öyster Cult along with Mark Farner’s American Band and The Fabulous Thunderbirds,” said Pekau. “Last, but certainly not least, on August 22 the Village will close out the concert series with a night of 90’s favorites with headliners Scott Stapp – voice of Creed, Filter and Dishwalla.

 

Tickets go on sale May 1 to residents only at a discounted price of $65 for all three concerts. Purchase your tickets by calling 708-403-5000 (Recreation Department) or 708-403-6170 (Finance Department).

 

On May 22, tickets will be available to the general public at a cost of $90 per ticket for the entire three-concert series.

 

“We’ve been through a lot and I can’t wait to see the community back out enjoying all Orland Park has to offer,” said Pekau. “See you this summer.”
