Imagine a beautiful, intimate stage nestled under the trees of Claremont’s Shelton Park (corner of Bonita and Harvard Avenues). Imagine the wide range of events that the community will enjoy with the addition of this permanent performance stage including performances by local musicians; art shows; a new venue for use by children from the Claremont school system; and The Claremont Colleges students and faculty music, art, thesis and doctoral presentations. Shelton Park also provides a third venue for events like Friday Nights Live (currently held Claremont Square Village Plaza west of Indian Hill Blvd., in front of the Claremont Chamber office and at the plaza adjacent to City Hall Council Chamber), helping introduce participants to all areas of the Village. CLU Community Performance Stage will be located in the northeast corner of the park - the ideal bookend to the John Fisher sculpture.

The City Council approved the project in concept. The Village Marketing Group (VMG), a subgroup of the Claremont Chamber of Commerce, coordinated fundraising efforts which helped $275,000 make the dream a reality.
