MPAC

It’s time to get excited for summer concerts! Mayo Performing Arts Center just announced they will hold six summer drive-in concerts at Fosterfields Living Historical Farm in Morris Township between June and August, and music fans will be excited by the lineup.

This is the second summer MPAC has held outdoor concerts, and tickets for all events go on sale this Friday, April 9. The concerts are held in partnership with Morris County Park Commission and the series is sponsored by Trend Motors.

“We are thrilled to be working with Morris County Park Commission again to stage outdoor concerts against the beautiful backdrop of Fosterfields Living Historical Farm,” says Allison Larena, president and CEO, MPAC. “We look forward to a great summer of rock and pop music presented in a safe environment for families to enjoy a terrific and fun evening of music.”

For those about to rock, here’s the Summer Drive in Line-up:

June
Thursday, June 17: The Nerds
Friday, June 18: The Sensational Soul Cruisers

July
Wednesday, July 14: Classic Skynyrd Live featuring Southern Steel
Thursday, July 15: David Clark’s Songs in the Attic: The Music of Billy Joel

August
Wednesday, August 18: The Jersey Tenors
Thursday, August 19: Boat House Row: The Yacht Rock Experience

All shows start at 6:30pm and the Fosterfields site will be able to accommodate approximately 175 cars that will be spaced out with social distancing guidelines. New Jersey regulations for outdoor events will determine whether or not patrons will be able to sit outside of their vehicles.

During the pandemic, MPAC was the first major NJ performing arts center to stage drive-in concerts and they presented seven concerts last summer at Fosterfields and at Rockaway Townsquare Mall. Those in attendance at the John Ginty and Friends show last June know that this is one series of shows you don’t want to miss!

Tickets are $100-$125 per carload.  Tickets must be purchased in advance online through the MPAC Box Office at or 973-539-8008. No tickets will be sold at the gate.

In addition to drive in concerts, MPAC will continue to present indoor concerts at a limited capacity. Additional events will be scheduled and announced shortly.
