Duck Jam in the Park
With the addition of the new Island Park Performance Venue, a new group has organized to plan an annual concert series on the new stage. The group, Island Park Productions, is the combined effort of eleven local organizations, as well as members from the community at large. The organizations participating are: Winfield Economic Development, Rotary club of Winfield, Winfield Area Chamber of Commerce, Winfield Arts and Humanities Council, Winfield Recreation Commission, Southwestern College, USD 465, South Kansas Symphony, Winfield City Band, City of Winfield, Legacy Regional Community Foundation. Serving as at-large members are Mark Olney, Bart Redford, and Cindy Goertz. Jill Long of Winfield Economic Development is the acting president of the corporation.
Island Park Productions will organize 4-5 concerts each year during the spring and summer. These concerts will be free and open to the public.
The Island Park Productions concert series will be funded through sponsorships from local businesses and organizations. This will allow the concerts to remain free to the public. Information on sponsorship can be found at the Winfield Chamber, 123 E. 9th Ave., or on the Island Park Productions Facebook Page.
