According to the Chestnut Hill Business Association, the Pastorius Park Concert series in Chestnut Hill, PA is the longest running outdoor concert series in Philadelphia. Last year, over 5,000 people attended at least one concert. Come hear a diverse set of bands and musicians in the backdrop of one of Chestnut Hill’s most majestic backdrops. Attendees are encouraged to bring blankets and chairs and enjoy the music. This is a great summer activity for you and your family and friends. A wide variety of music is played over the course of the summer and you are sure to have a great time!
