Outside at the Research Park is back

The outdoor, family-friendly summer series Outside at the Research Park is back again this year. Krannert Center for the Performing Arts released this announcement this week:

Krannert Center for the Performing Arts once again joins forces with Fox/Atkins Development, LLC and the University of Illinois to present this free summer concert. Stay tuned for upcoming artist and amenity announcements on June 4.

OUTSIDE at the Research Park plays upon a simple concept: great music, all-ages enjoyment, and community wellness partnerships in an open, relaxed environment. The tree-lined, grassy space has hosted thousands of audience members each summer since the inception of OUTSIDE in 2007. The 2019 OUTSIDE concert—a part of the Center’s 50th-anniversary celebration—will continue to demonstrate Krannert Center’s commitment to promoting wellness through the arts and to partnering with other community assets to enhance life in Champaign-Urbana.

The performance space and seating area are located just south of the Atkins Building at the corner of First Street and St. Mary’s Road in Champaign. Free parking is available in the lot south of the Caterpillar Building at 1901 South First Street. All performances are free and open to the general public.

The announcement comes during at an exciting time for KCPA, who recently announced the lineup for their bienniel ELLNORA Guitar Festival, and just released their 50th season announcement last week.
