My Street Nights!

Some live music coming to Park Forest this July!

Calling out around Park Forest are you ready for a brand new beat? Summer’s here and the time is right for dancing in the street (and the park!)

We miss seeing you at Main Street Nights so we’re going to bring music to your neighborhood with My Street Nights! Starting on Wednesday, July 1, there will be a pop-up, mini-concert travelling around the town. Each stop will feature approximately 20 - 30 minutes of music before we head to the next destination. The show hits the road around 5 p.m. each evening and will conclude in the downtown area so that if we don’t visit your neighborhood, you are welcome to see any band at the final stop. Our bands will be practicing social-distancing on the stage a 20’ trailer pulled by a pickup truck) and we ask anyone who joins us to respect social distancing requirements. So walk or ride a bike to the location near you or perhaps drive to the site and listen while seated in your car!

The lineup for the four weeks is as follows -

  • July 1 - Fredi Taylor featuring New Source
  • July 8 - Front Porch Fun featuring Jo Ann Daugherty
  • July 15 - The Blooze Brothers with the Bloozemobile
  • July 22 - Breeze featuring Andrea Billups

There will be two routes used for the four weeks, a south route and a north route. Locations are subject to change and there is no rain site in case of inclement weather.

The south route for July 1 and July 15 includes Murphy Park, Autumn Ridge, Somonauk Park, Mohawk School and downtown (Cunningham Blvd.and Main Street).

The north route for July 8 and July 22 includes Eastgate Park, Illinois Park, Indiana Park, Michelle Obama School of Technology and the Art, and downtown (Cunningham Blvd. and Main Street).

In the order of the routes listed, we anticipate being at the sites on the half-hour, details of the locations and times will be published on Facebook the day before each concert.
