Picnic in the Park was started by Kalispell Parks and Recreation in 1992 by then Recreation Superintendent Jennifer Young and has since grown into a staple of summertime community activities in Kalispell. Picnic in the Park is carried on year after year because of the support of local businesses and organizations. It truly is event for the community, by the community.

Our Title Sponsor for this year’s Picnic in the Park Concert Series is Kalispell Toyota. Kalispell Toyota is a proud active community supporter of various events throughout the community, including the Northwest Montana Fair Concert and Livestock Auction, Art in the Park, Great Bear Fest, and many more. They have supported dozens of organizations and events throughout the community over the past decade and have been a proud supporter of Picnic in the Park for many years. Thank you to Toyota for their continued support of the 2024 Picnic in the Park!

Some notable performances this year include Tommy Edwards Band, Archertown, touring Country Artist Tyller Gummersall, and the Mike Muray Duo. We will also have three Wednesday lunchtime concerts this year that will coincide with Kalispell Parks and Recreation’s Food Truck Wednesdays at Depot Park!

The only thing that makes free music in a beautiful park better is ice cream! Mark your calendars for July 16 when Parkside Credit Union holds their annual Ice Cream Social! Parkside Credit Union has been a long-time sponsor of Picnic in the Park and has made a tradition of the Ice Cream Social. Parkside Credit Union employees will be at the Depot Park scooping free ice cream to the community!

We have an exciting summer of music planned this year and we can’t wait to see you at Depot Park!
