For Spring 2024, the Special Events Team has a great lineup of one-day events and series for you to check out. There is an event for the pet lover in your life, a throwback event to the era of disco, and a street festival that has something for the entire family. If laidback series are more your thing, then check out our outdoor happy hours or morning jazz sessions. See below for more information.

Get ready for Summer 2024 with the return of Parks Playhouse Junior, stand-up comedy, and a new event series, Parks Summer Concerts. Check out sing-a-longs, puppet shows, and interactive music classes with your little ones during the day, and get moving and grooving at night with live music from the best local bands.

Community Partnerships

Consider an event partnership with us! Our special events team hosts events year-round in our parks and we are looking for local entities that want to bring unique ideas, grow an existing program, reach a specific audience, or meet a community need. Our partnerships are cooperative relationships where both organizations share responsibility and resources to bring amazing programming and events to the community.

If you are interested in partnering with Montgomery Parks, you must submit an official request. Before you get started, please consider the following: 

  1. Is your request being submitted at least four months in advance of the event? 
  2. How does this program oevent align with Montgomery Parks’ mission or vision?  
  3. How does this event or program benefit the local community and Montgomery Parks?  

 Thank you for your interest! if you have any questions, please email activationevents@montgomeryparks.org
