FREE concert on Lily Dale Floating Stage to feature The Dixiecrats

LILY DALE – Outdoor summer concert performances on Lily Dale Assembly’s floating stage continue with a performance by The Dixiecrats on Sun., July 30, at 5 p.m. Admission is FREE and open to the public as a gift to the community from Lily Dale Assembly.

The Dixiecrats is a Dixieland-style band led by well-known area keyboardist Frank Farina.

Lily Dale’s floating stage was built in the early 1990s and donated to the Lily Dale Assembly by the Lily Dale Fine Arts Council, a group of volunteers who planned and coordinated a summer concert series on the stage for more than a decade. The stage was rebuilt five years ago by Lily Dale Assembly and is anchored in Cassadaga Lake behind Lily Dale’s Leolyn Hotel. This will be a relaxing and enjoyable evening of music in a great location on the shores of beautiful Cassadaga Lake.

“Lily Dale Assembly attracts a significant portion of its summer visitors from communities in the area,” says Lily Dale Assembly Executive Director Susan Glasier. “This concert is our way of saying thank you to those communities.” There is no charge for admission; concertgoers are encouraged to bring lawn chairs or blankets or to come by boat.

This event is funded in part by the New York State Council on the Arts Decentralization Program with the support of Gov. Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature and administered by the Cattaraugus County Arts Council.

The final concert scheduled for the summer on Lily Dale’s floating stage features members of the Jamestown Harmony Express on Sunday, Aug. 13.

Special note: Because the floating stage is located behind the Leolyn Hotel outside of the Lily Dale gates, the gate fee does not apply.
