Summerfest Family Theatre: Mr. Jon & Friends
June 28 @ 10:00 am - 10:45 am| Free
From clowns and magicians, to Emmy-awarding winning musicians and puppeteers, the Summerfest Family Theatre has brought high-quality entertainment to Frederick youngsters for over 17 years!
From a modest beginning highlighting three programs throughout the summer, the series has grown to feature eight, full-length performances by some of the most sought-after children’s performers in the region. Kids’ sensations Laurie Berkner and Milkshake have both been part of the series, exposing more children than ever to the magic of the performing arts.
“Mr. Jon & Friends” is Parents’ Choice Award winning music for kids and their families. This energetic family music is all about fun, movement, and laughter! Folk-rock married duo Jon & Carrie experienced a decade of playing shows, recording CDs, and having artsy opportunities, such as being on a television show, becoming finalists in a national songwriting competition, and having international radio play from Belize to Ireland. When Jon and Carrie became parents, they began writing songs for children, performing at children’s birthday parties and kids’ festivals, and recording their first CD targeted toward children. His CD quickly became a top seller on CDbaby.com, and also won a 2013 Parents’ Choice Award.
