WE ARE BACK!
LET US COME TOGETHER THIS SUMMER TO CELEBRATE AS A COMMUNITY — IT’S TIME TO GET BACK OUTSIDE AND NOURISH OUR SOULS WITH MUSIC.

For more than 40 years, the Wildflower Music Festival has presented quality music in a natural amphitheater, surrounded by majestic pines and sweet breezes.

July 3 | Alliance Brass – a powerhouse brass quintet for the Fourth of July playing early classical, classical pops, jazz standards and favorite patriotic music to help celebrate the holiday.

July 10 | Ilya Yakushev and Thomas Mesa – phenomenal pianist and internationally award-winning classical cellist performing Beethoven, Bolling, and Rachmaninoff. Classical fans will not want to miss this one!

July 17 | Delfeayo Marsalis Jazz Quintet – a true New Orleans jazz band featuring one of New Orleans’ own First-Family of Jazz. Trombonist Delfeayo has performed with his brothers Wynton, Branford, Jason, and his late-father, Ellis, as well as leading his own jazz quintet for decades.

July 24 | Appalachian Roadshow – these performers are the real deal of old-time bluegrass with many awards to their name, both singly and collectively.

July 31 | Tapestry, The Carole King Tribute – a show featuring Suzanne O Davis, looking, and sounding like Carole King. She and her band pay an amazing tribute to this great `60s and `70s singer/composer.

August 7 | The Beatles Tribute – Paperback Writer is guaranteed to bring you the most precise experience of The Beatles as humanly possible says The Los Angeles Times.

August 8 | EXTRA SUNDAY MATINEE AT 3 PM ~~~ Beach Boys Tribute – Catch A Wave recreates the look and sound of a live Beach Boys concert circa 1964 to 1969 replicating their unique harmonic California sound.

wmflookinguphillThe Wildflower Music Festival and the Dorflinger-Suydam Wildlife Sanctuary will be navigating our reopening to the public each day in accordance with the most current state and federal government guidelines. As the mitigation efforts continue, these guidelines have potential to change often. As of May 1, masks must be worn to enter the amphitheater, when using the rest rooms or porta-johns, when walking around the grounds, and in the Dorflinger Glass Museum/Gift Shop. Attendees are asked to maintain 6 feet between groups who are sitting, standing, or walking together. The safety of our attendees, volunteers, performers, technicians, and staff is always of utmost importance, whether before, during, or after a performance. Please follow any rules the Sanctuary puts in place to help keep you safe.

As an open-air outdoor music festival held among majestic pine trees and green ferns on the grounds of the Dorflinger Sanctuary in White Mills, Pennsylvania, we are fortunate to have the best location to meet state and federal safety guidelines. Seating is on the grass in our natural graded amphitheater, so please bring a lawn chair or blanket to sit on as chairs are not provided. Picnics and beverages of your choice are permitted at all outdoor concerts.

All concerts are held on Saturday evenings at 6 p.m. except the August 8th Sunday matinee which starts at 3 p.m. The seating area in the amphitheater opens at approximately 5 p.m. on Saturday evenings, and at approximately 2 p.m. for the Sunday matinee on August 8th, or whenever the artists have completed their sound check and rehearsal. Seating is on a first-come basis.

We hope you will enjoy the extra afternoon concert this season. Not only are there 8 concerts instead of 7, but this matinee will hopefully enable those who work on Saturdays to attend a concert. In addition, weekenders/vacationers who must return home on Sunday evening may find it easier to attend a Sunday matinee.

Those who contribute $400 or more may have their own chairs stored and set up at any concert they will be attending.

In previous years in the event of inclement weather, we would move performances to the air-conditioned auditorium of the Wallenpaupack Area High School, Hawley, PA. Unfortunately, this may no longer be possible because of state and federal Covid rules and new restrictive school policies. If it is possible to move to an indoor venue, the school does not allow food and beverages in the auditorium.

twochairandblanketIf in doubt of the location on the day of a concert, call 570-253-5500 after 12 p.m. or visit online at www.wildflowermusic.org for current info.

The Wildflower Amphitheater is located on the grounds of the Dorflinger-Suydam Wildlife Sanctuary on Long Ridge Road in White Mills PA.
