Every summer, the City of Fort Lauderdale Parks and Recreation Department presents the Starlight Musicals Concert Series at Holiday Park, located off Federal Hwy and Sunrise Blvd, minutes from downtown Fort Lauderdale. For 39 years, these free outdoor concerts have provided a great way to enjoy the summer with family and friends. The series features an exciting lineup of bands covering pop, country, rhythm and blues, tropical rock, and more. The shows take place Friday nights beginning June 8 and continuing through August 10, from 7:00 to 10:00 p.m. on the football field at Holiday Park, located at 1150 G. Harold Martin Drive in Fort Lauderdale.
This year in honor of Starlight Musicals’ 40th Anniversary, the concert scheduled has been extended to 10 weeks – two additional weeks from previous years. Residents and visitors alike are encouraged to bring lawn chairs, picnic baskets, and coolers. Please note that pets are not permitted in the park.

Non-Profit Awareness & Food Drives
Each week, Bank of America features a non-profit group to raise awareness of their program and goals. We also collect food donations for people and animals in need. Please help Bank of America support these worthy causes. Our goal is to surpass last year’s totals. If every person brought a food item each week, think of the impact we could make! Let’s try for 2,000 items. Non-perishable food donations will benefit The Pantry of Broward and Life Net 4 Families. Pet food donations will benefit Abandoned Pet Rescue.
