The traditional Powell Festival will be held as a three-part concert series this year instead of a one-time annual weekend of festivities. The concert series will be held from 6-9 p.m. Friday, June 25, July 30 and Aug. 27 on the McClurg Properties Stage in Village Green Park, 47 Hall Street.
Concerts will be held in collaboration with the Downtown Powell Designated Outdoor Refreshment Area (DORA) and will feature local food trucks from Delaware County. The city also plans to partner with the Powell Sertoma Club and local brewery partners – The Daily Growler, Nocterra Brewing Company and Ill Mannered Brewery – to host a beer service tent in the park.
