Ripon Summer Concert Series
June 7th through September 6th
For the 27th consecutive summer, the streets of downtown Ripon will be filled with the sound of music when the Ripon Summer Concert Series returns. This year's series includes a greater variety of music than ever before. Organized by Ripon Main Street, Inc., the free outdoor concerts take place on Friday evenings at the Village Green in downtown Ripon. A special bonus concert by the RMS and RHS Jazz Bands is planned for Thursday, May 30th. The summer series kicks off on Friday, June 7th with Stephen Cooper & Nobody Famous.
The series features a diverse group of entertainers encompassing a wide range of musical styles. Several community favorites are returning to the lineup including Cherry Pie, Road Trip and Star Six Nine. Several new groups have also been added to the schedule including Bad Habitz, Kyle Megna & The Monsoons, Feed the Dog and Altered Five Blues Band. Ripon Main Street will announce the final two concerts of the season in the coming weeks. We believe you will find the mixture of new bands and old favorites very appealing.
The concerts run from 7:00 to 10:00 pm and take place at The Village Green located at the corner of Watson and Seward Street (101 W. Seward Street for GPS purposes). The series typically takes place on Friday evenings, June through August, but occasionally bonus concerts are added or events rescheduled due to weather issues. Participants are encouraged to bring lawn chairs or blankets to sit on. NO CARRY-INs are allowed in the park because beverage sales help cover entertainment expenses. Free music isn’t really free.
A special Thank You goes out to the local businesses that sponsor the music series. Let them know you appreciate the financial commitment they have made to our community. We are grateful to have their support, because there would not be a concert series without their financial assistance.
Ripon Main Street, Inc. invites you to enjoy an evening of entertainment in historic downtown Ripon and discover what makes our community so special.
