      Fort Reno Concerts Are Back On

      The concert series at Fort Reno Park is back on following a meeting between organizer Amanda MacKaye and officials from the National Park Service and U.S. Park Police today. MacKaye announced that the series was canceled last week, saying that NPS and USPP officials had not explained a request that the concerts pay for a Park Police officer to work at each show.

      I have enjoyed the concerts since I moved here in 1975, when I stroll over to Ft. Reno or from my home 2 blocks away. It is a fantastic, sage and whlesome venue for teens, families and the elderly. My son played on stage there in 1996. Where are we to go on a warm summer evening for such multi-generational, community interaction? Or are you facilitating its extinction?

      Ft. Reno is a community space, and the concerts have been a draw to the neighborhood for years. There is nothing better to build community than events like this that bring out the locals.

      The Ft. Reno summer concert series is an important DC institution which allows a diverse range of local musicians to perform for the community for free. Well-organized for a welcoming and appreciative audience, Ft Reno concert series must be protected and supported.
