We appreciate your understanding and cooperation in maintaining a safe and enjoyable concert experience. 

As a reminder, please bring your own chairs to the concert as we have very limited seating available at the Interpretive Center

Please park in the beach parking lot or gravel parking lot near the Interpretive Center and walk to the concert venue. Drop offs near the building will be allowed. Parking at the Interpretive Center is very limited and reserved for the handicap and those with a true need to park near the building due to limitations. Please do not block driveways or roadways with your vehicles. 

A friendly reminder, alcohol is not allowed in the park and there are no concessions at the Interpretive Center. Please bring your own non-alcoholic drinks and snacks. 

Thank you and we hope to see you on the mountain!

The Friends of High Point State Park invite you to join them this summer for three magical evenings of music in the park. Bring your family and friends up the mountain for a day of fun, then stay for a fabulous concert on the beach at Lake Marcia. Spread a blanket out on the grass and enjoy a picnic supper. Dance barefooted in the sand. Summer nights were made for music under the setting sun!
