Union County Parks Summer Arts Festival

If you’re looking for some fun and free family events to fill up summer days, the Union County Parks Summer Arts Festival isn’t short on options.

After taking the pup for a walk through Oak Ridge Park this past week, I was inspired to dig up the events calendar to see what the parks had in store this summer.

I’ll be honest, the first one to catch my eye was a July 24 date for a Led Zeppelin tribute band promoted on a banner at Oak Ridge Park, but I’m happy I pulled up the calendar to check out some of the other shows going down. In addition to the Zeppelin tribute, you can catch cover bands for Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, The Grateful Dead, The Beatles, and Billy Joel.

To top it off, the Union County calendar also includes a number of movies in the park, along with two separate dates in July for Shakespeare in the Park.
