Pastorius Park Summer Concerts

2018 Pastorius Park Concerts

Pastorius Park Concert Series draws to a close

Pastorius Park Concerts 2018

Our 70th anniversary season has concluded and the stage is down. Thank you to the following who support the Pastorius Park Concerts: Our series sponsor, Chestnut Hill Chestnut Hill Hospital; our weekly sponsors and advertisers, Merrill Lynch-The Nottingham-Goodman Group, Kismet Cowork, 4Paws Insurance, One West Chestnut Hill, Chestnut Hill Hotel and Market at the Fareway. We also want to thank XPN, Philadelphia Parks & Recreation, Friends of Pastorius Park, and our friends at Springside Chestnut Hill Academy who welcomed us when the weather didn't!

We couldn't present our concerts without the dedicated help of our wonderful team of enthusiastic, hard working Pastorius Park Concerts committee and volunteers! They meet, plan and help promote our concert series, assemble the stage, set up tables, tents and concessions each week, and help take down the stage at the end of the season.

Finally, a big thank you to all our performers who delighted our audiences! It was a memorable 70th Anniversary season and we had a blast! Toubab Krewe, The Jasper String Quartet, Zydeco A-Go-Go, RUNA, The Luke Carlos O'Reilly Quintet, and Ben Arnold. See you next year!

Pastorius Park Concerts is the longest running outdoor concert series in Philadelphia and takes place amongst the backdrop of one of Chestnut Hill’s most majestic areas. Families and friends bring blankets and chairs and enjoy the music. The concerts are supported by both the Chestnut Hill Community Association and the main sponosor is Chestnut Hill Hospital.
