City View Park Transforms into a Concert Venue

“The City of Hazleton has been building up to this event since 2016,” said Hazleton Mayor Jeff Cusat. He also recalled similar, smaller events taking place at CAN DO Community Park (then called Center City Park) and City View Park in the recent past. He continued, “The stage at City View Park was installed in 2018 foreseeing the major events that would be held there.”

Bring a blanket, some snacks & your dancing shoes

Each evening will feature a different professional tribute band and a local opening act. All shows are free of charge and open to all ages. According Mayor Cusat, the decision to host the concert series at City View Park was simple. “It is a beautiful, 22-acre facility that offers a great outdoor feel while still in the city limits.”

The spacious park features a stage, six lighted and covered pavilions, ample parking, restrooms, a walking trail and plenty of space to spread out. “And it’s all far enough away from the residential areas to not create a nuisance,” Mayor Cusat added.

The event will also host a variety of food and beverage vendors. Gates will open at 5 p.m. prior to each show with music scheduled to start at 6 p.m.
