The 6th PARKSOMMER will take place from the 14th July to 14. August 2022 in the Stadthallenpark in Chemnitz city center. Visitors can look forward to a varied summer program from Tuesday to Sunday in a wide variety of facets and genres between jazz, classical music, folk, singer-songwriter, poetry slam, children’s events, yoga and quizzes. 75 events can be experienced on the 360-degree stage in the middle of the park. Traditionally, the Studio W.M. – Workshop for Music and Theatre from Chemnitz opens on the 14th. July with two concerts the open air cultural festival. The Sunday program is redesigned this year. Weekly at 5:30 p.m. Stefan Tschök invites under the title “Play along!” for a casual quiz round in the park. It’s about Chemnitz history, street names, geography, personalities and other things. There are also a few bars of music and certainly one or the other fun. From 8 p.m., the stage belongs to international artists from Ukraine, France, Finland or Canada, among others.
All events take place in a relaxed, relaxed deckchair atmosphere around the Caucasian wing nut in the park. A limited selection of sun loungers is available for rent on site. Private seating options such as yoga mats, blankets or folding chairs can be brought along.
All events are free of charge. Without entrance fees and sponsors, such a project is of course not possible. Together with Volksbank Chemnitz eG, the organizer team of C3 Chemnitzer Veranstaltungszentren GmbH has therefore started a crowdfunding project. Simply put, it’s about every visitor paying as much as he can for the events. Any amount paid for the PARKSOMMER is supported with 25% on top by Volksbank Chemnitz eG. This secures the financing of the festival the following year. At least 20,000 euros are needed. Under the motto “Fat mice for Schnurrbert”, PARKSOMMER mascot, cat Schnurrbert, is happy about every amount of support. As a supporter, you will also receive a small thank you: There is a festival ribbon for 5 euros. The voluntary Obolus can be paid at the service counter on the festival site as well as online on the crowdfunding platform.
