This year marks the 24th anniversary of Sandy Summer Sounds & Starlight Cinema. What started as a humble offering of a few concerts per year has turned into a great line-up of performances and movies.
This year Sandy Summer Sounds consists of a theater and dance series on Sundays at the Theater in the Woods Stage, and a concert series on Wednesdays at the Dale Nichols Main Stage. On Saturdays, the Starlight Cinema offers a great selection of family-friendly movies shown on the big screen at the Main Stage beginning at dusk.
All shows are held in beautiful Meinig Park, located just behind City Hall at 39250 Pioneer Blvd. and are FREE to the public. Everyone is invited to come out and enjoy a wonderful Sandy tradition. For more details please see the schedule below
