There’s plenty to do this month: you can attend a Rock & Roll concert, be mesmerized by folk music, or go international by visiting different countries.
Come and celebrate St. Patrick’s Day early this year with RUNA! Enjoy the sounds from the new Irish “super group,” RUNA, as they push the boundaries of folk music and traditions of the Celtic people of Western Europe at the Sunrise Civic Center Theatre. Tickets for adults are $18 per person and children under 12 are $10. Don’t miss RUNA as they weave their haunting melodies and exuberant tunes of Ireland and Scotland, with rhythms of jazz, and harmonies of flamenco, bluegrass, and blues!
AROUND THE WORLD
Celebrate international culture, entertainment, and cuisine at the 4th Annual Weston World Fest presented by The Arts Council of Greater Weston at the Regional Park. Admission is free. This year’s theme is “Stage & Screen,” highlighting movies, music, theater, and performances from around the globe. As you make your way around the world, there will be booths representing 20 different countries. There will also be an exciting passport challenge for students! Once you build your appetite, local restaurants will be selling authentic international cuisine while you enjoy a variety of live performances onstage by dancers, artists, singers, and musicians bringing the theme to life!
ROCK & ROLL
Bring your family, friends, or even a date for an evening of music under the stars and you will be able to sing along to America’s greatest Rock and Roll songs. The Weston Nights Concert Series will feature Jaded, a tribute to Aerosmith, as they perform some of their greatest hits like “Livin’ on the Edge”, “Dream On”, “Sweet Emotion”, “Walk this Way”, “Jaded”, and more! This event will take place at the Regional Park, and there is no charge for admission. You can bring your own lawn chairs or blankets, so come early to select your preferred seating area. Coolers are also welcome; however, alcohol is not permitted into the park. Food trucks will be available on site offering a variety of food and beverage options. Enjoy the show!
