About South Orange Summer Nights

Flood’s Hill in Meadowland Park is the place to be each Wednesday night all summer long.  Beginning in June, enjoy programming on the summer stage.  As the evenings get longer in July, music presented by the South Orange Performing Arts Center (SOPAC) takes center stage, complete with free concerts, food trucks, arts activities, and games for the kids.  August brings the popular movies on the lawn.

There is something for everyone all summer long!

Programs are subject to change.  In the case of inclement weather, activities will be cancelled.
