Memorial Park will play host to country music star and five-time Grammy nominee Hunter Hayes in October as he headlines the first-ever “Citadel Palooza.”
Sponsored by Citadel credit union, 100 percent of concert ticket tales will be donated to the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.
On Wednesday night, Scott Mirkin from ESM Productions asked borough council to approve a Sly Fox Beer biergarten for the concert.
“We like to work with local vendors whenever we can,” he told council.
Council will vote Monday on the request.
Citadel is celebrating its 80th anniversary and the Oct. 7 concert is being billed as “Citadel Palooza.”
The inspiration behind Citadel Palooza is the credit union philosophy of “People Helping People.”
“Citadel Palooza is Citadel’s celebration for our community, and we are honored to have Hunter Hayes, who is such an inspirational artist, be a part of it,” said Jeff March, president and CEO, Citadel. “The people of the Greater Philadelphia area have supported Citadel for 80 years, and we want to give back in a big way. We especially want to thank our members for making this event possible.”
During Citadel Palooza, concert attendees will enjoy a variety of food trucks and libations. The official schedule of events and opening acts will be announced in September, along with food and beverage vendors.
General Lawn Seating tickets will cost $25, and VIP-level tickets cost $50.
Tickets can be purchased at CitadelPalooza.com with the option to donate additional money to CHOP.
