Annual Bank of America Starlight Musicals


Fort Lauderdale Parks and Recreation Department proudly presents the Bank of America Starlight Musicals concert series, celebrating 30 years under the stars. These FREE outdoor concerts provide a great way to enjoy the summer with family and friends. Join us in Holiday Park, Friday nights, 7:00 – 10:00 pm, June 13 through August 8, 2008. The series will feature an exciting line up of bands ranging from pop to country, rhythm and blues to tropical rock. As an added bonus, each week the City of Fort Lauderdale Parks and Recreation Department will select a theme and hold a contest for the best decorated seating area.


The shows take place on the football field at Holiday Park, which is located at East Sunrise Boulevard and Federal Highway. Residents and visitors are encouraged to bring lawn chairs, picnic baskets and coolers. Please note that pets are not permitted in the park. We look forward to seeing you out there this summer!


30th Anniversary T-shirts can be purchased with a credit card. Look for surprise weekly activities in honor of 30 years under the stars!

In lieu of a Starlight Concert on Friday July 4th please join us on Fort Lauderdale Beach as we celebrate the nation’s birthday with our annual concert, family activities and fireworks.
