Music in Kelley Park moved to Bogart’s for Aug 16th Concert

Music in Kelley Park Featuring The Riverside Hitmen and sponsored by the City of Apple Valley has been moved to Bogart’s Entertainment Center due to the uncertainty of weather conditions. The decision for this change had to be made today and the audience and performers safety is our primary concern. We appreciate your understanding and would rather change locations today than have to make a decision to cancel the concert completely on Friday. We appreciate your understanding and look forward to seeing you on Friday August 16th, from 6 – 9 at Bogart’s. Thank you Bogart’s Entertainment Center for allowing Live Music In Apple Valley!

7/26/19 Music in Kelley Park Has Been Cancelled

We regret to inform you that tonight’s Music in Kelley Park featuring MacPhail Jazz with Adam Meckler is cancelled due to weather.  Mother Nature is going to do what mother nature is going to do.  The Apple Valley Arts Foundation must keep public safety 1st and foremost for our attendees.  After speaking with our performers and our nightly sponsor, we have made the decision to cancel this evenings performance.  We look forward to seeing you next Friday, August 2nd, with Music in Kelly Park featuring Coyote Wild.  Let all  think “great weather” for next week’s concert!
