Who’s playing this year? See http://www.wilsonvillerotary.com/concerts/bands/ for the schedule. Click the picture of each band to learn more about them.
When do the shows start? 6:30 p.m. We also have opening acts that begin playing at 5:30 p.m. Come early and claim your spot on the lawn!
Where should I park? We recommend walking if you are within walking distance of the park. If you must drive, there’s a limited number of parking stalls immediately next to Town Center Park that are available first-come, first-served. The designated parking lot for the concerts is the City Hall parking lot. In the event that you can’t find space there, the designated overflow parking is at Clackamas Community College’s Wilsonville campus. From the southwest corner of that lot, there is a short city pathway that leads directly to Town Center Park. There are also public lots within a somewhat walkable distance, at the Wilsonville Community Center and the Wilsonville Public Library. It is recommended that you arrive early for best selection of available parking spaces. It is also advisable to carpool with friends or neighbors. Make an event of it!
Can I take SMART? You bet. There is a Wilsonville Farmers Market shuttle that stops at Town Center Park, where the concerts are held. Please check the SMART website at www.ridesmart.com for schedule information. For the four weeks of the concerts, the shuttle schedule is extended. The last bus from Town Center Park departs at 8:30 p.m. Other stops include Villebois, City Hall and the Charbonneau Village Center.
Is smoking allowed in Town Center Park? No. By city ordinance, smoking is not permitted.
Will food be available at Town Center Park? As a convenience to patrons, Rotary arranges for a limited selection of food vendors in the park. There are also many great local restaurants where you can pick up dinner on the way to the concerts. Watch http://www.wilsonvillerotary.com/concerts/food/ for a list of vendors and local restaurants.
Will alcohol be available? No. Rotary has not secured an alcohol permit for the concerts and will not be selling alcoholic beverages. Per city ordinance, Town Center Park is an alcohol-free zone.
Are these concerts free? You bet! The Rotary Club of Wilsonville produces this annual concert series as thanks to the Wilsonville community for its generous support of our service projects and activities throughout the year. There is no admission charge. However, if you would like to make a contribution to End Polio Now, it would be gratefully appreciated. Every dollar given is matched two-for-one by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and every 60 cents pays for one vaccination. So, if you give $20, it is matched with $40 and becomes $60, which is enough to fund 100 vaccinations in the Third World. That’s impact.
What is the Rotary Club of Wilsonville? We are a local club comprised of 40 business leaders who get together for service and friendship. We meet weekly at the Al Kader Shrine Center in north Wilsonville, and we are very active, with numerous service projects performed throughout the year. Visitors are always welcome at our meetings.
