Fun summer street series in downtown Clayton
“Parties in the Park” is a misnomer; these concerts are not held in the park as they used to be. My wife, a horticulturist who used to work for the City of Clayton, informed me that the event was moved to the center of downtown Clayton to preserve the healthy turf and beautiful landscaping—and to make it more convenient for attendees and benefit the great local restaurants.

The fact that they are not held in the park doesn’t diminish the level of fun and community this series offers. The location for the concerts is in the street—North Central Avenue between Maryland and Forsyth. The stage backs up to Maryland facing south with cocktail tables and vendors filling the street to the south.

The crowd is mostly Clayton office workers dressed in business attire, but people like me who opt for more typical summer concert attire like shorts and t-shirts will also feel comfortable.
