Sunset Socials

Outdoor entertainment is returning to the park, with socially-distant, family-friendly events at Andrew Brown East! City of Coppell staff has been hard at work to develop and reimagine events for a safe and enjoyable experience while adhering to COVID-19 safety protocols. Events will look different this year with reservations required for some events, face masks encouraged for attendees, and other social distancing guidelines. But the unique Coppell experience will still be the same.

Check-In for Reserved Spaces

Upon arrival, please make your way to the Grand Pavilion to check-in. Check-in begins at 6:15 pm. After you check-in, you will be able to proceed down into the park to pick your Social Square. The square locations are first-come, first-served and you must check-in before picking your square.

We are encouraging everyone to bring blankets and chairs to sit on. Please no tents or similar raised structures, as they may reduce visibility for those behind you.

 High-Volume Attendance Expected

The music will begin playing promptly at 7:00 pm. Due to the availability of general seating at this event, we are anticipating a higher volume of attendance outside of the Social Squares. Please make sure you arrive early to secure a parking spot and to select your Social Square location prior to the music beginning.

Parking

Parking will be available at Andrew Brown Park East and at The CORE, 234 E. Parkway Blvd. Should you need to park elsewhere, parking is available at Moore Road Park (600 N. Moore Rd.) and Andrew Brown Park Central (364 N. Denton Tap Rd.). You can follow the trails down into the main portion of Andrew Brown Park East. Please remember to stop by the Grand Pavilion for check-in prior to selecting your Social Square.

Food Options

Food will be available for purchase at the event from F&F Express, Waffle O’licious, and Mandico Ice Cream truck.


COVID-19 Protocols
