Cardinal Park set to host a variety of events


JOHNSON CITY, TN (WJHL) – Johnson City’s Cardinal Park will soon be hosting its first concert as well as other events.

Assistant General Manager Zac Clark says they really want to become more than just a baseball park.

He says while baseball is a big part of what the park is, they want to be able to offer the community more events to enjoys throughout the year.

Clark said, “We are going to try this out and see how it works for us because we really want to expand on this and grow. But there are other events that we are looking at doing. We want to do a beer festival here the stadium I don’t need the lights. We think that would be really cool.”

The headliner for the parks first concert will be Nashville recording artist Josh Thompson.

Thompson has had several songs to hit the charts such as “A Cold Beer With Your Name On It” and “Way Out Of Here” to name a couple. Local favorite Grant Meridith will open the show.

Clark says they hope to host more concerts and events such as 5k’s and beer festivals.
