Due to the impact of Hurricane Laura on Saturday, we have made the very difficult decision to MOVE the event to Sunday, August 30th from 12n-8pm. It IS 2020 after all…..so anything was possible.

If you have tickets and cannot make it on Sunday, please email Info@DrPepperPark.com with your order number to request a refund.

Tickets purchased for Saturday’s date WILL be honored on Sunday.

Thank you for understanding! We appreciate your support!
