The Oregon Garden begins its 10th summer music series Friday, July 3, at Teufel Amphitheater.

Country headliner Amy Clawson, opening act J.R. Joe and the Farm, and breath-taking fireworks add up to a sizzling evening for all ages. Admission is $10, Silverton residents and Oregon Garden members; $15, all others.

At this concert only, Silverton residents can visit The Oregon Garden for free from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. (The Oregon Garden is free to all after 6 p.m.) Amphitheater gates open at 5 p.m., and the concert is at 7 p.m.

Other scheduled concerts include:

Thursday, July 9 – Three Dog Night & The Flex Tones

Wednesday, July 22 – Sam Bush & The Grascals

Thursday, July 30 – Crystal Gayle & Juice Newton

Thursday, Aug. 6 – “Swinging with Benny Goodman” music by trio

Tuesday, Aug. 11 – Sawyer Brown & Tracy Reynolds

Two features have been added, VIP seating at the front (extra cost) and pre-ordered picnic baskets.

“We have expanded the food,” said Oregon Garden General Manager April Purdy. “At every concert we’ll have a East Willamette Valley winery booth, a local dessert vendor, Coldstone Creamery and an additional food vendor.”

Purdy said children 7 years old and younger are admitted free. Water brought in sealed bottles will be allowed this year.
