HAVE FUN, BE SAFE, AND BE CONSIDERATE OF OTHERS:

Our concert series has always been a family-oriented program. Please be considerate of your neighbors, so that everyone may enjoy the music and the natural surroundings. If you smoke, make sure your second-hand smoke doesn't’t bother anyone else. We ask that you keep children in sight at all times, so their safety is assured, and so their play will not disturb others. Remember that some of our guests may be afraid of dogs, so please observe our park leash and litter pick-up laws, and keep pets under your control at all times. Spectators are encouraged to bring flashlights for added safety. Bring a blanket or lawn chair and a few friends and join us for our weekly open-air summer concert series at Deer Path Park in Readington Township, NJ.

ABOUT OUR CONCERTS

In February of 1977, Parks & Recreation and County Library staff met to discuss plans for holding the County's first summer concert series for families to enjoy in a relaxed atmosphere. The series would be held outdoors, so concert goers could enjoy the natural beauty of our County. Children could enjoy the music or play in the open areas near the concert area.

A total of five concerts were offered that first year. From the summer of 1977 to the present, people would either bring lawn chairs or blankets to listen to the Thursday night summer concert series. Along with the blankets and chairs, a picnic basket of snacks or full dinners were also brought. The "Music Under the Stars" concert series has continued to grow in popularity, attendance, and in the quality of musical acts each year. Additional concerts were added to provide music from the end of June to mid-August.

Initially, the performers lived nearby and were locally known. With assistance from local businesses and with individual donations, regional and nationally known artists were featured at the concert series. Performers included Arlo Guthrie, Roseanne Cash, Janis Ian, and Richie Havens.

In 2010 we began featuring many of our local talents who graciously donate their time. If interested in becoming a featured artist, please contact the Department at 908-782-1158 or email parks@co.hunterdon.nj.us for information.

We hope to see you at our Music Under the Stars Concert Series!
