4 reasons to go to the Fleetwood Mac tribute show at Boone Woods Park

  1. You love the music of Fleetwood Mac, but you don’t want to drive all the way to Dayton, Ohio to see Lindsay Buckingham and Christine McVie and September is a long time to wait to see Stevie Nicks in Louisville. You can hear your favorite Fleetwood Mac tunes when Fleetwood Dreams recreates their sound practically in your backyard at Boone Woods Park on Saturday, July 29 at 7 p.m. You’ll hear Rhiannon, Say You Love Me, You Make Lovin’ Fun, and many more of their hits at this one-night-only performance. (Listen to Fleetwood Dreams before the show at the park.)
  2. You can sit where you want and bring your own food! Just pick a place on the lawn, spread out your blanket, open your cooler and enjoy the show! No need to purchase overpriced food from a concert vendor or walk down aisles searching for your seat number!
  3. No admission fee! That’s right, you do not have to purchase a ticket to see the concert – you’ve already paid. The concerts are brought to you by Boone County Public Library and Boone County Parks Department and as a Boone County taxpayer, you’ve already paid by funding both the Library and the Parks No GoatsDepartment!
  4. You don’t need a babysitter! Bring the kids with you! You can also bring your neighbors’ kids, your grand kids, your kid gloves…almost any kind of kid except for young goats. Please do not bring young (or old) goats to the park.

Boone Woods Park is located at 6000 Veteran’s Way in Burlington, Kentucky. All concerts begin at 7 p.m. In case of rain, the concerts will be held at the Main Library, 1786 Burlington Pike in Burlington. Inclement weather after 5 p.m. may not allow enough time to move all of the sound equipment and instruments indoors. Call the Rain Out Hotline at 859-334-2283 for weather updates.
