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 Orchestra at 7:30 p.m.
Nestled in a corner of the City's 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."
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 Friday, July 18 and rising country stars Shane O'Dazier Band on Saturday, August 23. Each concert begins at 7:30 p.m.
Newtown Park Amphitheater is located at 3150 Old Alabama Road, Johns Creek 30022.
