LAYOUT FOR JULY 1
Note the COVID Vaccine Clinic will be on 5th Street.
The State of Illinois will start providing a free, pop-up vaccination clinic during this concert, from 5:30 – 8:30 pm on the 5th Street side of the block. They will be onsite every Thursday through the remainder of the series providing doses of Pfizer (for ages 12 and up) as well as Johnson & Johnson. In effect, an attendee could walk up and get their first dose on July 1 and then get their second dose later in the series. Organizers recommend signing up at this link to lessen wait times and secure a specific slot.
This year, the stage is on Jackson Street and all of the seating will be on the Y Block lawn. As always, admission to the Levitt AMP Springfield Music Series is free and the public is invited to bring their own picnics, blankets, and lawn chairs to enjoy the concerts. It's Springfield's version of Ravinia!
COVID PROTOCOLS **NEW INFO**
With the State moving into Restore Illinois Phase 4b and soon 5, we no longer need to paint "pods" into the grass to keep people safe. With thousands of available square feet to enjoy the music, we ask our patrons to socially distance responsibly and wear masks if you are not yet vaccinated. We are grateful for a grant from the Memorial Medical Center Foundation which allows us to provide masks and other safety resources during the series.
If you don't want to make your own picnic dinner, attendees are encouraged to support local restaurants by picking up takeout on their way to the Y Block. Beverages will be available on site for purchase. There will be two bathroom stations, on 4th and on 5th Streets.
The Springfield Jaycees are organizing this year's volunteer crew. Volunteers greet the audience when they arrive, give them helpful information and also take surveys. If you'd like to volunteer, email Leah. One of the goals of the Levitt AMP program is to revitalize an underutilized area, like the Y Block, which has gone from parking lot to community gathering spot thanks to this series. Your responses when asked to participate in the survey are helping us craft a vision for the future of the block.
