The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted.

Dana Point Arts and Culture Commission Anthony Small, and his band, Small World, will open the Dana Point Concerts in the Park on Sunday, July 22. Small World has played the event twice, including last year.
“Our beautiful community has nurtured my passion for music and the arts since we moved here 21 years ago and I’m delighted to give back anyway I can. As a City of Dana Point Arts and Culture Commissioner, it’s my duty and pleasure to encourage all types of artists and to support and create programs that enrich our community, culturally speaking. As a musician, I can honestly say performing for my community at Dana Point Summer Concerts in the Park is on my lifetime highlight reel,” Small said.
Formed 15 years ago, Small World played local events like Concerts in the Park, Festival of Whales, National Night Out, Lantern District car shows and art shows, Dana Hills baseball and football fundraisers and Swallows Inn and StillWater Dana Point. Small mentioned that previously, they have even played at PTA year-end events at Malcom Elementary and Marco Forster Middle School,” Small continued.
“The Dana Point Concerts in the Park series is an iconic gathering, a rock and roll picnic with 3000-4000 of your neighbors. It’s a part of our community’s identity, like surfing, the Festival of Whales and Doheny Blues Festival. People can bring their own refreshments or purchase food, libations and such from local organizations there,” Small reminded the Dana Point community.
Small World begins playing at 3 p.m. Bonfire-AC/DC Tribute follows from 4:30-6 p.m. For more details on upcoming Dana Point Concerts in the Park visit www.danapoint.org.
