JOHNS CREEK, Ga. – The Newtown Park Amphitheater opens in Johns Creek’s Newtown Park on Saturday, June 28 with an official ribbon cutting at 7:15 p.m., and a free concert by the Johns Creek Symphony at 7:30 p.m.
Presented by the Johns Creek Foundation, the opening night concert will feature classical and patriotic selections. It is the first of three in the city’s Summer Concert Series.
The popular Jimmy Buffet tribute band, A1A, appears July 19, and rising country stars the Shane O’Dazier Band will play Aug. 23. Each concert begins at 7:30 p.m.
Nestled in a corner of Newtown Park, the new amphitheater is constructed of laminated pine and seats up to 440 people under the wooden structure, with hundreds more in tiered seating in the open air.
“The amphitheater is a tremendous addition to the growing cultural offerings in our city, and I am particularly thrilled that we have been able to engage our own Johns Creek Symphony Orchestra for the opening concert,” said Mayor Mike Bodker. “We are all looking forward to joining the community at the grand opening and continuing the celebration throughout the summer music series.”
Newtown Park Amphitheater is in Newtown Park at 3150 Old Alabama Road, Johns Creek.
