Hopes are high for Kellogg summer concert series

KELLOGG — The Music in the Park concert series is a few months away and the Silver Valley Chamber wants 2024 to be the best that the summer series has ever been.

The series began six years ago as part of the Silver Valley Community Market, but in the wake of the COVID 19 pandemic, it diminished. Since then, organizers have been working to regrow the weekly Thursday night festival. 

Kelton Enich has been involved for several years and said 2024 could be a return to form if they can attract more vendors.

“We already have all our bands booked and plan to release the names of the musical acts in the next few weeks,” Enich said. “We have some exciting goals with Music in the Park this summer. First of all, we hope to re-establish a robust showing of market vendors to sell their homemade and homegrown products. There is no vendor fee this year, so anyone hoping to sell their products can do so for free each Thursday evening.”

They have several vendors already signed up, but they are looking for more, including garden and produce vendors and food and drink.

In order to keep the event free, Enich and the Chamber are looking for community support. 

“Music in the Park has been an important summer event for the city of Kellogg for the last five or six years and this year we're trying to make it even bigger and better,” she said. 

Vendors must fill out an application with the Silver Valley Chamber to participate and registration is open until the first week of June. 

Music in the Park runs every Thursday at 5:30 p.m., June 20 through Aug. 15, in the Kellogg City Park.
