First-Ever Bauler Barn Dance Happening Tomorrow

On Saturday, October 1, we are excited to partner with Bauler Advisory Council to host a Barn Dance at Bauler Park! The Barn Dance theme will be country and western music, with an array of square dancing, contra dancing and other simple country and western steps focused on making this a fun event for all ages. Lines, circles, and squares will be the typical formations used in our Barn Dance.


The Barn Dance allows us to socialize and celebrate, even if you’re normally not a dancer. Our “caller,” joined by live musicians, will provide easy-to-follow instructions that enables all participants to get quickly engaged in the fun. We’ll be using the concrete surface at the west end of Bauler Park.


We’ve separated the event into two groups: Non-Adults (15 and under) dancing between 5:30 and 6:30 p.m. Younger children will need to be escorted by an adult to help guide them. Adults will be dancing between 7:00 and 8:30 p.m. All participants, young and old, are encouraged to dress up western style to add to the fun.

Tickets are $30 per family, $25 for adult couples and $15 for adult singles. All proceeds will benefit LCA and Bauler Park Advisory Council. Learn more and get tickets here.

Fifth Star Band Plays Free Concert at Bauler Park

After being rained out on August 7, we are happy that Fifth Star Band has rescheduled their FREE concert in Bauler Park for Sunday, October 16 from 3:30 – 5 p.m., Fifth Star Band will give a free concert in Bauler Park!


A modern take on American traditional rock, The Fifth Star Band grooves to a funky, old school beat that’s guaranteed to get you dancing. Drawing inspiration from Anderson East, The Revivalists, and Van Morrison, this Chicago-based, roots rock band continues to deliver upbeat, soulful tunes that are elevated by their energetic live performances. Since emerging on the Chicago music scene in the summer of ‘16, TFSB has played all around the city at venues such as The Cubby Bear, Martyrs’, Reggie’s, The Elbo Room and multiple yearly stops at The Store. Despite a minor hiatus after the December 2019 release of their first full-length album, Vice, the band resumed making their mark on the city's music landscape including a command performance in 2021 at Bauler Park. 

Howler at Bauler Set for Oct. 29

Lincoln Central’s signature Halloween party is back, and will be better than ever!


Known as "The Haunt of the Neighborhood”, Howler at Bauler is held each year during Halloween weekend in Bauler Park.

Howler at Bauler includes a costume parade, face painting, a balloon artist, games, candy, a DJ to dance to and more for local neighborhood children and families. Howler at Bauler will take place on Saturday, October 29 from 3 - 5 p.m. at Bauler Park.
