Rock the Park

Posted by on Mar 15, 2020

PLEASE NOTE: The remainder of our Spring 2020 season has been postponed until fall. We miss you and look forward to seeing you this fall!

Mueller and KUTX are excited to rock the amphitheater at Mueller Lake Park again this year with another round of free, family-friendly concerts curated by KUTX and our Sunday-evening kids’ show Spare the Rock, Spoil the Child.

Come a little early to secure your spot on the lawn (blankets are cool, but chairs aren’t) and grab your dinner from a food truck. We’ll have rock-and-roll face-painting for the kids by Faces By Juliet (no charge, but tips for the painters are welcomed.) We’ll also have coloring for the kids at the Mueller tent (where you can enter our #colorKUTX Instagram giveaway for a family membership to the Thinkery), additional activities from our sponsors, and cold beverages for the grown-ups.

We hope to see you at Rock the Park!
