Fort Dupont Summer Concert Series
The National Park Service offers 6 Rhythm and Blues performances in July and August as part of Fort Dupont Park's "Summer Theatre" concert series. The upcoming concert series scedule will not be available till May of 2013.
The concerts' are sponsored solely by the National Park Service and free to the public. Past performers have been the SOS Band, Rose Royce, Kindred, Regina Bell, Mandrill, Roy Ayers and ZAPP. There is a Jr. Ranger tent offering programs for children and general information about Fort Dupont Park.
Volunteers have played a crucial role in supporting the concert, helping NPS staff from set-up to break-down and all in between. For forty years Fort Dupont Park has offered free first-class entertainment for the public and it would not work without the help from volunteers and our friends group.
Come out again this year and enjoy a night of R&B under the stars!
