The series wraps up on June 26th with juggler Brian Wendling.

Each program will begin at 9:30 a.m. and will last a maximum of one hour. Bring your entire family for fun-filled entertainment that will thrill children of all ages. Performances will be held outdoors in the Ironwoods Amphitheater or in the case of rain, extreme heat, or by the needs of the performers (such as StoneLion Puppets) events will move inside the Lodge at Ironwoods Park. The Lodge offers floor and chair seating.

The amphitheater has some concrete risers for seating but lawn chairs, blankets and sunscreen are recommended. There are no concessions available at Ironwoods Park but picnics are welcomed. Dogs must be on a leash.

Come to Ironwoods Park to enjoy the entertainment and stay to visit the Historic Oxford Schoolhouse or the Prairie Oak Nature Center.
