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 to 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 and reserved tables) is open seating.  Come early to get good seats and purchase dinner before the show starts!

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.

If you’re interested in being a Sounds of Speedway Sponsor, please contact Jana Schmader at or 940-766-3347.
