7:30 pm every Tuesday in July, Pizza, sandwiches, pasta, water, and pop will be available at family-friendly prices.
Note: For the safety, comfort and convenience of attendees, the Village no longer allows tables, tarps, or construction tape at the concert. Sun umbrellas are also prohibited. Chairs and coolers are still welcome and encouraged.
The family-friendly Mid-Summer Classics concert series, hosted by Elk Grove Village and the Elk Grove Park District, takes place during the month of July.

The 2020 concert series has been rescheduled to next year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Elk Grove Village officials has rescheduled its annual Mid-Summer Concert Series given the uncertainty and challenges associated with staging a major event attended by tens of thousands of music fans amid the global coronavirus pandemic.

All four concerts originally slated for this summer will now take place in July 2021:

Sunday, July 4, 2021 - Daughtry
Tuesday, July 13, 2021 - KC & the Sunshine Band
Tuesday, July 20, 2021 - Bret Michaels
Tuesday, July 27, 2021 - The Beach Boys

The decision to postpone the concert series and the fireworks display was based on concerns over the risk that large gatherings this summer could aid in the spread of the coronavirus. The artists supported the decision to postpone the shows and each act will return in 2021 at no additional cost to the Village.

Enjoy the MAC From Home! Drum Tao 2020! FB  
Dear MAC friends,

As you know, we had to abruptly cancel the rest of our season. Since the cast of Drum Tao 2020 was already here and this was their last performance of their tour, we wanted to do something for the community and continue to find a way to reach our audiences and provide some family entertainment. We asked the COD multimedia department if they could help us stream a live performance on Facebook to reach our audiences in the safety of their homes. We were able to pull it together in 49 hours and we want to share it with you!

Over 45,000 people have watched this since the streaming on Saturday night, and it continues to be viewed in homes around the country and in Japan! We wanted to share this great performance with you, our most loyal fans, and hope that it provides you with some joy. In these dark days, we need the arts the most.

A history of
Stax Records: (More info)

Between 1959 and 1975, Stax Records in Memphis, Tennessee released international chart-topping hits such as "Soul Man," "Dock of the Bay," "Green Onions," "Midnight Hour," "Respect Yourself," and the theme from SHAFT. The label's artists included Otis Redding, Sam & Dave, Booker T. & the MG's, Rufus and Carla Thomas, the Staple Singers, Isaac Hayes, and even Richard Pryor and Jesse Jackson. Founded by a white conservative bank teller who played country fiddle music, Stax became the preeminent soul music label in America, and became identified with the civil rights movement of the 1960s and '70s. RESPECT YOURSELF documents the Stax label, its visionaries, and most of all, its music.
