2015 Ann Arbor Summer Festival: Top Of The Park Preview

May 8, 2015

 Ann Arbor Summer Festival Executive and Artistic Director Amy Nesbitt joined me Friday for a preview of the 2015 Top Of The Park schedule. The free Top Of The Park offerings and activities have grown remarkably over the years. 

What began as little experiment with one band and free film screenings on top of a parking structure now encompasses a city block with two stages, a full variety of food vendors, family activities, exercise and wellness classes, Michigan craft beer tastings, family favorite films and state-of-the art acrobatic performances. 

 

Amy Nesbitt, her professional staff and huge team of volunteers will host over 130 different events for the 2015 Top Of The Park series in the new location:  North University Avenue between Fletcher and Thayer Streets from Friday June 12th through Sunday July 5th.  Amy shared the story from the Ann Arbor Summer Festival and Top Of The Park’s inception to the international attraction it has become today.
