Oracle Band Upcoming Outdoor Concert Performances
The mansion and grounds are easy to get to, and even many of those from the area have driven right past it without even knowing it was there. There are two parking areas, on either side of the mansion grounds. It is located just off Route 197 in Laurel, about two minutes from the Baltimore-Washington Parkway. We have directions on the website. Directions to Montpelier Mansion
Laurel Independence Day Celebration
On Saturday, July 2nd Oracle will be returning to Granville-Gude Park at Laurel Lakes for the annual Independence Day concert and fireworks display. This event draws thousands to an idylic setting in the beautiful concert pavilion next to the lake. The day kicks off with a morning parade through the streets of Laurel. Following the parade they have a classic car show on the grounds, and of course there is the carnival atmosphere as vendors of all sorts man their booths selling all sorts of great food, novelties, and services.
The show gets underway at 7:00 and we play until 9:00
Whether you make it out to one or all of these summer performances, the main point is we hope to see you soon. Dust off those lawns chairs, break out the blankets, and find that pic-a-nik basket (subtle Yogi Bear reference for those that remember), and bring the kids (of all ages). There promises to be something for everyone!
