August Concert, Movie Events at Corvallis Parks

A couple of outdoor summer events involving film and music will be hosted in Corvallis parks next month. 

Beginning on Aug. 11 at 6:00 p.m., Rich Swanger & The Little Known Band will be performing live folk and country blues music at Chintimini Park as part of the Corvallis Community Center’s (C3) Summer Concert Series. No registration is required, and the event is free and open to people of all ages.   

And from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. the next day, music and light refreshments will also be provided at the C3 terrace, where people can freely play games like cornhole, ladder toss, bocce, and more. 

Another event includes the return of the annual Movie in the Park, a family-friendly “outdoor cinema experience” that will be taking place at Avery Park on Aug. 18. “Moana” will start playing at sunset, though the event – which is also free – begins at 7:00 p.m. Concessions will be available for purchase.
