Centennial Lakes Park is looking for new entertainment to expand its summertime entertainment lineup.
Comedy, dance, live music in any genre, performance art, puppeteers and other acts are all welcome to apply.
“We would love to have some blues, jazz, country or hip hop,” said Centennial Lakes Park General Manager Tiffany Bushland. “We have a popular lineup of recurring acts, but would like to add performances that Edina residents would enjoy or that would draw new visitors to our spectacular park.”
Performances must be family friendly and performers need to supply their own equipment. This is an outdoor venue with performers under the cover of an amphitheater. Attendance varies greatly depending on the act, but averages around 350 people. Centennial Lakes Park, 7499 France Ave. S., is the crown jewel of Edina’s parks, featuring walking paths, public art, 10 acres of lake, putting courses, paddle boats and lawn games in the summer.
The summer series traditionally is evening performances from 7 to 8 p.m. Sunday, Mondays and Wednesdays and children’s performances 11-11:45 a.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Payment is $150 for evening performances or $250 for children’s acts.
A committee will review all applications and select performers to invite to the series, which runs June through August.
Interested performers must fill out and submit the application at CentennialLakesPark.com by Jan. 31, 2022. See the application for more details.
