Kicking off the summer of concerts is a Taylor Swift Singalong featuring singer-songwriter, Sydney Worthley, on Wednesday, June 19.

Whether you’re a ‘Swiftie’ or not, this is sure to be a fun-filled way to open our season.

Cathy Gatta, Freedom Park Foundation Board President and Entertainment Director

This season, Freedom Park is welcoming 10 new acts ranging from party bands to classic rock, including Local 11,  Roxy & The Rollers, and Reese Fulmer & The Carriage House Band.

Additionally, Soul Provider will play on Friday, June 28 during the town’s fireworks display. Triffid 2.0 will also play, bringing a revival of the Upstate New York 1980s band on Aug. 10. On the following night, the BWC Jazz Orchestra will perform a tribute show in memory of late Freedom Park visionary, Dennis Madden. Screaming Orphans make their return to Scotia to close out the season on Aug. 21.

“We’re also excited this year to offer an Improv Night with Schenectady’s Mop & Bucket Company, promising an evening filled with spontaneous humor, audience participation, and lots of fun. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to see some of the best local talent in action, delivering a night of laughter and creativity,” added Gatta.

Shows are offered every Wednesday, Saturday, and Sunday at 7 PM located at the outdoor amphitheater on Schonowee Avenue, Scotia across from Collins Park. All performances are rain or shine.

This season’s concerts are presented by Jumpin’ Jack’s Drive-In, and media partners B95.5 FM, The Daily Gazette, and Discover Schenectady.

Moreover, the Freedom Park Foundation is powered by the support of local businesses, the Village of Scotia, and Freedom Park memberships. With the addition of grants from the Schenectady County Arts & Culture Grant and Town of Glenville, and audience donations, attendees can experience a wide variety of shows free of charge while supporting local musicians.
