Announcing the 2016 Kidchella Summer Concert Series at the Smith Memorial Playground

Sometimes I bite off more than I can chew. My eyes have always been bigger than my stomach (and that’s saying something). Here’s to hoping this isn’t that.

After 2 wildly successful Kidchella family music festivals at the Smith Memorial Playground in Philadelphia, we’ve decided to turn one beautiful summer evening of all-ages music into three. Over the course of this year’s warmest months, the Kidchella summer concert series (I do like the sound of that!) will bring a total of 6 phenomenal kindie (kid’s + indie) bands to the gorgeous grounds of the Smith Memorial Playground.

Here’s the lineup and the dates for the 2016 Kidchella Summer Concert Series at the Smith Memorial Playground! Tickets will be available soon (free for Smith members, very affordable for non-members…but consider joining the Smith now — it’s only $30 a year for your entire family! So it pays for itself if you and your kids attend just 1 Kidchella concert!)
