McCormick-Stillman Railroad Park in Scottsdale will offer their annual summer concert series from May 3 through July 5.

The concerts begin at 7:30 and last until 9 p.m.

If you enjoy family time, being outdoors, good music and good company, then you have met your match. The park’s traditional concert series makes a welcome return for locals to enjoy their Sunday summer nights.

For the past 25 years, McCormick-Stillman Railroad Park, run by the City of Scottsdale, has hosted free Sunday evening concerts. It consists of family-oriented concerts put on by local bands playing a variety of cover music. The music ranges from classic rock and country to Motown and R&B, as well as other genres.

The concerts offer a fun atmosphere for families to enjoy their summer nights.

“It’s great to see 100 to 200 children and adults dancing around the stage and enjoying their time every Sunday night,” manager Carrie Moyle said.

The past few years have shown great success and a returning rate from 1,500 to 3,500 in attendance.

Admission is free, but train and carousel rides are $2.00 per person with children two and younger riding free with a paying adult. The park’s small train in the arboretum offers rides for a donation as well.

The park will offer concessions as well as other items outside. Concertgoers are able to bring their own food and beverages if they wish. For parents or individuals of age who enjoy their concert nights with a drink, beer is permitted with a permit and can be purchased on site.

“This is a BYOB event; bring your own blanket, folding chair or whatever else you need to comfortably enjoy the concerts in the grass,” park employee Nathan Ferguson said.
