Spectra Venue Management, the Stride Bank Center and the Chisholm Trail Expo Center are pleased to announce a series of must-see, drive-in concerts. These entertaining drive-in events will be held in the parking lot at the Chisholm Trail Expo. Ticket prices will be per vehicle (with a maximum of 5 people per vehicle).
“Amid the current COVID-19 pandemic, drive-in theaters have proven to be a safe, creative way to deliver fans world class entertainment,” said Stride Bank Center General Manager Kevin Boryczki. “We are taking that same concept and turning it into a drive-in concert experience where people who arrive in the same vehicle will be able to enjoy the concert sitting right outside their vehicle, while social distancing from everyone else in attendance.”
The safety and well-being of our guests, employees, and performers is the top priority of the Stride Bank Center and Chisholm Trail Expo Center. Venue staff will have social distancing guidelines in place to provide a safe concert experience and will be following all state and local health mandates. All areas that will be used by the general public such as restrooms will be cleaned and sanitized throughout the event. Please stay turned to Stride Bank Center and Chisholm Trail Expo Center social media outlets for additional details on how a safe environment will be provided for this event.
