Summer Concert Series

August 2015-3

We are excited to announce that the Manahawkin Lake Summer Concert Series on Monday evenings at 7 pm in July and August will begin on Monday July 12 through August 30!

Stafford Recreation is very excited to partner with the Stafford Township Historical Society once again for the Summer 2021 Concert Series at Lake Manahawkin.
  

These concerts are made possible in part by a grant received from the Ocean County Cultural & Heritage Commission &
the NJ State Council on the Arts.




Other sponsors include:

​Stafford Recreation - Platinum Sponsor

 


Join us every Monday evening for music by the lake.  Bring your blankets or beach chairs, coolers, and family to enjoy an evening of music with the best sunsets in town!


While there is no charge, we kindly request a donation at each concert to the Stafford Township Historical Society to help them continue their mission of the restoration and preservation of the Old Stone Store, Cavalry Cottage, Railroad Station and Cultural Center (a Revolutionary War era church).  These donations will help to cover the cost of the concerts as well as preserve our rich local history for generations to come.
