ORANGE, NJ – The City of Orange has partnered with Essex County Executive Joseph N. DiVincenzo, Jr. to host four festivals this summer in Essex County Monte Irvin Orange Park as part of the 2023 Essex County Free Summer Music Concert Series. The free Concert Series brings a diverse group of musicians and entertainers to perform at locations throughout the historic Essex County Park System and provides residents with an evening leisure activity to enjoy the parks. This year’s series features three concert and fireworks spectaculars, five concerts in Brookdale Park, 12 concerts throughout the County and four cultural festivals in Monte Irvin Orange Park.
“We are happy to welcome Orange residents and all those who will come to the City of Orange Township to enjoy a variety of cultural festivals in Monte Irvin Orange Park,” said Mayor Dwayne Warren, Esq. “In Orange we have a diverse population, and we are grateful for the partnership with Essex County that allows us to be the host site for festivals that represent the cultures of our residents. We encourage everyone to come out and enjoy some good food, music and fellowship this summer,” he added.
The Summer Music Concert Series is being sponsored by Rose Squared Productions and The Horizon Foundation for New Jersey. The series is also made possible, in part, by the New Jersey State Council on the Arts/Department of State.
