Covering the hill with blankets and lawn chairs, music lovers of all walks of life have ventured to Wolf Pen Creek Park since 2002 to enjoy free, family-friendly entertainment under the stars during the Starlight Music Series. This year, College Station’s Parks and Recreation Department is bringing back six nights of entertainment and the Voters’ Choice contest.

Gates open each night at 6pm and the concerts begin at 7pm. Guests may bring their own refreshments. Coolers must be 48 quarts or smaller. Glass containers, kegs, and pets are not allowed. Concessions will be available for purchase. Smoking is not allowed in the main seating area. There are three designated smoking areas in the facility. Blanket-only seating areas are designated for each concert. Chairs are welcome, but they may not occupy blanket-only seating. Admission is free and free parking is available at Post Oak Mall. Handicap parking will be located off Colgate Drive.

Those interested must submit one song in a MP3 format and a YouTube video of that song being performed by April 2.
