Santa Clarita’s LA SummerFest To Have New Stage This Summer

The new stage will be a temporary and portable stage from Steeldeck Risers, an industry standard, and will be set up each year for the festival, according to a news release by LA SummerFest. LA SummerFest

The new stage is expected to last for the next five years until a more permanent performance space can be built, LA SummerFest officials said.

The grant covers about half the cost of the new stage, so the festival is required to raise the matching funds needed and is currently looking for sponsors, according to the news release.

“We are looking for select local companies to sponsor the matching costs of the festival stage,” said David Stears, executive director and producer of the Santa Clarita Shakespeare Festival, one of the festivals featured in LA SummerFest. “We are looking to name the festival stage for one of our sponsors.”

The LA SummerFest is a summer cultural festival presented annually at Towsley Canyon’s Rivendale site in Santa Clarita and this year’s festival is scheduled to include Shakespeare, an americana/folk music festival, performances of the musical Cabaret, a Blues Celebration, a night of free praise music, a Night at the Opera and a performance by the SCV Concert Band, according to the news release.

The festival is scheduled to open July 5 and run through Aug. 10.
