End of Summer Reading Bash!

Celebrate the last days of summer with music and a movie! Kick off the evening at the Chrysalis with a performance and activities by Bash the Trash, a group that builds and performs with musical instruments made from recycled materials. Then parade over to Merriweather Movie Nights to sing along with a screening of The Greatest Showman at 7:00 p.m.

Chrysalis gates open at 4 p.m. Merriweather Movie Nights ticketing is separate.

This event is presented in partnership with the Howard County Library System and is sponsored by Friends & Foundation of HCLS.


What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Parking will be assigned a few days before the event via Eventbrite. Parking is generally within a 1/4 mile walk from the Chrysalis. Please contact us for ADA parking or other requests.

We strongly encourage use of bike and rideshare services to and from the Park!

What can I bring into the event?

You may bring a blanket or lawn chair, picnic (no glass) and non-alcoholic beverages into the Park. Concessions will be available for sale.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

No, however, please bring your parking assigment print out or have it ready to display on your phone or other device.

Can I bring a pet?

Sorry, no pets at performances, though pets are welcome when the Park is open and there is no show. Pets (leashed with their people) may be outside the fence line in the rest of the Park during a show. We are working on some pet friendly events for the future. Service animals always welcome.

Can I bring balls / frisbees / etc.?

Sorry, not during performances. You are welcome to do so other times.
