LCAA Open Late - Saturday June 29
Strasburg Concerts in the Park

The LCAA gallery will be open until 6:30 pm to give concert goers an opportunity to view our Open Door exhibit before the music starts. Enjoy an evening of art and music! Bring a lawn chair and after viewing the exhibit, listen to the music from the LCAA's patio or go over to the park. Summit Hill Bluegrass Band with The Deconstructionists will be playing that evening. There will be food vendors on site at the park. They ask that you do not bring alcohol or coolers. We hope to be open for several of the other concerts this summer.
