On Saturday, July 1, The Soul Galaxy will perform an electric rock and blues concert. The Soul Galaxy are no strangers to the Arts Park stage and have wowed audiences there many times through the years. Featuring blues guitar legend Tim Hagar, drummer extraordinaire Jon Kidd, and bass master Charles Green, this power trio is sure to bring it.

All performances begin at 7:00 p.m. (unless otherwise noted) at the Mariposa County Arts Park (5013 Hwy 140) in historic downtown Mariposa, CA.

Parking is available along 4th and 5th Street. The lower 5th Street parking lot provides an accessible pedestrian path to the Arts Park through the Mariposa Creek Parkway entry.

Tips for the performers will be solicited, encouraged, and appreciated.
