The mission of the Arts Council is to nurture and strengthen the artistic, cultural, and educational quality of the community and surrounding areas.

Sounds of Speedway

What is Sounds of Speedway?

Sounds of Speedway is a community concert series, bringing six months of all types of music to The Forum.  Along with the great music, concert-goers can purchase dinner from a local food truck and all concerts are BYOB!

When do the concerts happen?

Concerts are held once a month starting in April and running through our big finale in September.  Concerts are Thursday evenings, with doors opening at 6:15 and music starting at 7:00.  All seating (other than Sponsorship Tickets) is open seating.  Come early to get good seats and purchase dinner before the show starts!

Who’s playing and how do I get tickets?

The 2018 Sounds of Speedway lineup is currently being prepared.  Tickets for each show are $20 in advance (up to the day before the concert) and $25 at the door.  We’ll also have information on season ticket and table discounts closer to show time, so check back for details!

Our tickets are digital, so the easiest way to purchase is to buy online.  Once you purchase online, you’ll receive two emails: one with your receipt and one that has the digital ticket QR code (you can print this or we can scan it directly from your smart phone at the door).  Feel free to forward your ticket code to anyone else using that ticket, we keep track of the number of uses at the door!

How is Sounds of Speedway funded?

While we charge a ticket price to attend Sounds of Speedway concerts, a large portion of this cultural programming is funded through sponsorship and grants.
