Come to Dix Park for a first-of-its-kind sound and light show in the beautiful oak trees of Flowers FIeld! Watch as musicians produce beautiful music and neon lights dance in the trees

Local visual and neon artist Nate Scheaffer created 384 neon light tubes which will hang in the trees of Dix Park. Connected to a theremin, an electronic musical instrument controlled without physical contact, artists will perform songs and musical interpretations that will Light The Woods with Sound.

Join us at the park to experience this amazing art installation. Each night will feature different performers, different musical themes and different experiences — no two nights will be the same! Read below for more information on each night!

This event is FREE, but please register if you plan to attend. Registering helps us know how many people to plan for, and we can alert you if we have to cancel due to weather.

Bring your family and friends, a blanket or chairs, a picnic basket, purchase from the food trucks and beer vendors on site. Leashed, well-behaved dogs are welcome.
