(Cherry Hill, N.J.) – Mayor Chuck Cahn and Township Council are proud to once again offer residents free, live entertainment every week in July at Cherry Hill’s historic Barclay Farmstead.
Expanded to five weeks for 2014, the family-friendly “Music Under the Stars” outdoor concert series will give music fans of all ages a front-row seat to both exciting headliners and up-and-coming opening acts, beginning at 6:30 p.m. every Tuesday on the grounds of the historic farmstead. The fun starts July 1 and runs through July 29.
Local food trucks will offer on-site dinner options, while the Friends of Barclay Farmstead will offer free guided tours of the Farmhouse.
“Music Under the Stars is a unique opportunity for residents to put on their dancing shoes and enjoy great live entertainment to the backdrop of a beautiful summer night,” Mayor Chuck Cahn said. “Bring your blanket, a chair, and even a picnic dinner, but with this year’s lineup, don’t expect to spend much time in your seat!”
