Join us for the Riverfront Concert Series. These concerts are held each summer to raise money for trail building and maintenance projects. Audience support is through the purchase of food and beverages and a donation when the bucket is passed, which goes directly to the Riverfront Trails. VIP ticket supporters purchase select seating for each concert and a wristband for expedited beer and wine purchases.
Concert Sponsors provide support in the form of monetary donations.
FIREFALL with special guests The Doubious Brothers
DATE FRIDAY, AUGUST 12TH
In an age where new bands come and go, Firefall has enjoyed a career that spans more than forty years and shows no sign of slowing down. Firefall’s commercial success includes three Gold albums, two Platinum albums and eleven chart-topping singles.

LITTLE TEXAS with special guests The William Brothers
DATE SEPTEMBER 9TH
As part of the Young Country movement of the early ’90s, Little Texas was responsible for shaking up the country music world with a new, energetic sound that fused the look and attitude of modern rock music with traditional country themes and styles, bringing a much appreciated bolt of life into the genre. For their efforts, country fans the world over richly rewarded the band, buying up over 7 million of their albums, while critics showered them with 3 Grammy nominations plus honors from both the Academy of Country Music (Vocal Group of the Year) and the Country Music Association (Album of the Year).
