LIGONIER, Pa. — Family trips to Idlewild & SoakZone will be more musical and magical this month thanks to a new, free concert series debuting Saturday, August 6. Each Saturday in August, Season Passholders and single-day guests get to extend their visits for free concerts beginning at 7:30 p.m. to jam out to some of the most popular songs of the 80’s, 90’s and today.

“We continue adding more live entertainment to Idlewild & SoakZone’s formula for family fun, and these special August concerts are the next act,” says General Manager Tim Heger. “Whether for a Saturday night free concert or a weekday getaway before the kids go back to school, Idlewild is the place to be this August.”

Don’t stop believing! You can be a dancing queen all month long at Idlewild with fantastically fun cover bands headlining every weekend free with park admission. Whether you’re a fan of Country, 80’s, Pop or Classic Rock,–Idlewild has the tunes to get heads bobbing and toes tapping. Beginning August 6 at Idlewild, the Hillside Theater plays host to ABBA tribute band ABBA Mania for the inaugural performance, followed by:

  • August 13 – The Andy Davis Bandbrings their unique, hard-driving country sound;
  • August 20 – Go back to the 80’s with Jessie’s Girl; and
  • August 27 – Bon Journey pays tribute to Rock & Roll Hall of Fame bands Bon Jovi and Journey
