Award-winning country band to headline Aug. 5’s Rockin’ FORE the Kids! benefiting Akron Children’s Hospital

For the first time in the 20-year history of Canal Park, it will be the home to a full-scale concert. On August 5, award-winning, multi-platinum album country music group RASCAL FLATTS will be headlining the 6th Annual Rockin’ FORE the Kids!, as part of the band’s Rhythm & Roots 2017 Tour.

Tickets for the concert go on-sale to the public May 8 at 10 a.m. at the Canal Park Box Office, online, and by phone. Field Access tickets are $65 and Reserved Tickets are $45. Gates will open at 6 p.m. with country music duo BROTHER TROUBLE scheduled as the opening act at 7 p.m.

Rockin’ FORE the Kids! annually benefits the Akron Children’s Hospital Foundation.

“We were thrilled when Phil Lopez (LOPen Charity Events) and Scott Mawaka (Mawaka Foundation) contacted us about hosting the event at Canal Park,” said Jim Pfander, RubberDucks General Manager and COO. “Bringing a world-famous country music artist like Rascal Flatts to downtown Akron will be exciting for our community, but most importantly, helping to raise money for Akron Children’s Hospital is the best part of this event.
