Reliving Summer Series at Rose Pavilion
This past June The Charleston Parks Conservancy unveiled a new event series in Hampton Park called the “Summer Series at Rose Pavilion.” The idea was simple, to host a free music series in one of Charleston’s most beautiful parks and each event would bring new musicians and local food trucks out to Hampton Park. Hosting the event on Thursday nights at the new Rose Pavilion was key to creating the perfect midweek hangout event.
Live entertainment included local artists Lumberjack Time Traveler, Nathan & Eva, and Logan from Logan and the Kidders with food trucks Street Bird- Westside, Area 51 Foods, Semilla, Lola’s Lumpia, Bearded Dogs, Braised in the South, and more showcasing some of the best eclectic culinary delights that Charleston has to offer.
“The Summer Series grew bigger and better at each event,” said Megan Mills, Community Engagement Manager for the Charleston Parks Conservancy. “Charlestonians, especially residents in the Wagener Terrace, North Central, and Hampton Park Terrace neighborhoods were drawn to the opportunity to get outside and enjoy the summer nights. It was amazing to see so many friends and neighbors gather up their things and make their way to Hampton Park.”
By the last event on July 25th, the Summer Series had seen it’s largest attendance so far. “The community responded so positively to the Summer Series that many attendees were asking us to extend the series into the fall, and although we couldn’t do that we are looking to expand our music events into more parks in the future.” shared Megan.
Now the Summer Series at Rose Pavilion may be done for this summer, but the popular Sunday Brunch in Hampton Park will be making it’s return to Rose Pavilion starting on September 15th and again on October 20th. Sunday Brunch offers a relaxing afternoon of music and mimosas featuring local food and music. Tickets are $10 in advance and $15 at the door.
