Eastmark, DMB Associates’ new community in Mesa, is celebrating the opening of its event pavilion in The Eastmark Great Park™ with an all-day free, public music concert featuring four of the East Valley’s favorite bands, local school bands and food trucks during the “Party at the Pavilion” on May 3.

Guests are invited to bring a blanket and lawn chair for the day of music and relaxation in The Eastmark Great Park, which will span 100 acres at completion. Performances include Cold Shott and the Hurricane Horns, Kool Band, Silhouette Band and Static Band. In addition, the Highland High School Symphonic Strings and BASIS Band are performing.

“As part of Eastmark’s goal to create a sense of community, we are celebrating the opening of the event pavilion by spending time with friends and family during a day of free music,” said Dea McDonald, DMB’s senior vice president and Eastmark’s general manager. “The Party at the Pavilion officially opens the event pavilion for community activities and performances.”

More than 100 homes have been completed at Eastmark since it held its grand opening in June 2013.

BASIS Mesa opened an Eastmark location in August 2013. In addition, Sequoia Pathfinder Academy at Eastmark announced it will open a school in August. Grand Canyon University is opening a second campus at Eastmark in 2015. Apple recently began operating a manufacturing facility at Eastmark.
