The Apple Valley community is gearing up for another spirited summer event with the return of the Music in Kelley Park concert series, hosted by the Apple Valley Arts Foundation. In a minor change of scenery, the June 21st concert was relocated to Bogarts Entertainment Center at 14917 Garrett Ave. according to an announcement by the City of Apple Valley. Despite the venue switch, the series holds out as a staple for family entertainment and cultural vibrancy throughout the warmer months.

Residents looking to indulge in some melodic evenings can mark their calendars for Fridays from 6:30–8:30 p.m., where they can settle into the rhythm of various performers against the backdrop of Apple Valley's Kelley Park, or for this week, Bogarts. The foundation's commitment to arts and community is evident, as they organize these free performances, accessible to all. As stated in the City's release, concert-goers are invited to bring your lawn chair or beach blanket and come out and enjoy all that summer has to offer.

While the melodies are the main draw, the concert series also features an array of food vendors, providing attendees with an assortment of food and beverage options to purchase. Patrons can also pack their own snacks, keeping in mind that glass bottles or containers are not permitted on-site. The events are crafted to be suitable for the entire family, which means they're an easy yes for parents seeking pleasurable and cost-free outlets for their kids.

In addition to the musical lineup, Kelley Park offers a range of amenities that include a splash pad, playground, picnic shelter, and restrooms, among others. It's this kind of infrastructure that turns a simple Friday evening concert into a potentially full-day experience for families wanting to make the most of the park's offerings. For concert schedules and performers, the City encourages folks to check the schedule provided in the initial notification. With admission being free, there's an open invitation to everyone looking to enjoy the communal atmosphere and live music that define summer nights in Apple Valley.
