The Outdoor Performance Series is a weekly outdoor performance series that supports the vision of a sustainable, walkable, vibrant top-20 college town. It is a collaboration between the College Park City-University Partnership, the University Office of Community Engagement, College Park Arts Exchange, the Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center, the University of Maryland’s School of Music, and the City of College Park.
Our goal is to enhance public spaces in College Park with art and music, bring the community together, articulate the area’s history, and give cultural context to new development. (Are you an artist? Sign up here.)
Mondays between 6:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. – The Hotel at UMD (7777 Baltimore Avenue)
This site sits at the intersection of campus and community. With more research and innovation space coming to this area, it is important to create more energy and excitement that people can see along Baltimore Avenue. The more people are out, enjoying themselves, in this area, the more people will want to be there and the more “buzz” it creates.
Fridays between 6:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. – Little Tavern Park (7413 Baltimore Avenue)
Located in the heart of downtown College Park, just south and west of the university, this site offers both students and community members the opportunity to participate in unique programming. In addition, this site hosts food trucks, and is a cool, hip, funky space.
NOTE: All performances are subject to weather conditions.
