Symphony music isn’t just for adults! The Columbus Commons is hosting Popcorn Pops with The Columbus Symphony this summer! It’s a great chance to show kids how fun this type of music can be!
These shows are perfect for families with children ages 3 – 12. Concerts feature free popcorn and pre-concert activities such as face painting, art projects, musical instruments and the Columbus Commons Family Fun Zone with inflatables and open play activities.
Gates open and pre-concert activities begin at 5:30 p.m. – get there early to snag a good picnic spot. Concerts begin at 7 p.m. and run for approximately one hour.
Tickets are $12 for adults. Children up to age 12 are free with at least one paying adult admission. Tickets can be purchased at the gate, by phone at 614-469-0939, or online at www.PicnicWithThePops.com.
Friday, June 18 – Space Out & Step Up!: Space out on the Columbus Commons lawn with an interactive concert featuring music inspired by space. Enjoy out-of-this-world music while showing off those “moon walk” dance moves!
Friday, July 16 – All the Colors of Columbus: Experience music from around the world and around our city! In partnership with arts organizations from in and around Columbus, this community showcase celebrates the talents and diversity of Columbus.
Stick around after the concert for a free movie night featuring Trolls World Tour at 8:15 pm. Bring a blanket or a chair and enjoy a FREE movie under the stars. Tortilla and Jeni’s will be open to accommodate your movie cravings. This event is after the Popcorn Pops performance ending at 8pm, which is a ticketed event. Concert tickets are not required to attend the movie. Gates will open to the public for the movie at 8pm.
If it’s hot, bring extra clothes for the kids, as there may be an inflatable waterslide again this year!
