Starlight Concert Series

Jun 2, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Serving up a diverse menu of musical stylings, Cary’s Starlight Concert Series returns for its 19th season at the Page-Walker Arts and History Center Garden, 119 Ambassador Loop. This free, four-part, lively concert series offers citizens a wide range of musical styles from local and regional artists, including two newcomers, and the garden setting is a perfect spot for all ages to enjoy music in a unique venue that invites everyone to explore a different side of downtown Cary. All concerts begin at 7 p.m.

Opening this year’s Starlight Concert Series is Polka Night with the Polka Plus Band. On June 2, pick your partner and join the fun in celebrating the 22nd annual Yankovic Day with a concert designed to bring polka fans together to listen to the music of the late Frankie Yankovic, “America’s Polka King.” It is in the spirit of keeping his music alive for both young and old that the band performs each year.
