Enjoy some great music along the banks of the Mississippi River at the Elk River Riverfront Concert Series Thursday nights this summer.
It’s so fun to see the summer events starting back up after such a quiet 2020. We enjoy finding events in the evening where can relax and enjoy some music or life theatre and have really missed that. Many communities have started to share their schedule of events and our calendar is getting busier.
The Riverfront Concert Series in Elk River starts on June 17th and continues on with the last one on August 19th. The concerts take place on Thursday evenings at the Rivers Edge Commons Park, 679 Main St. at 7:00 p.m.
The series looks like a great line up and something for everyone.
We enjoy free concerts around MN in the summer, it gives us a chance to explore towns we might not otherwise go to and find places to eat before or after the concert. We also try to support some of the small stores while we are there and have found some fun local places for food, gifts and home decor.

Why aren’t areas marked off to accommodate the handicapped (wheelchair accessible) like they were two years ago
Hi, Alan. The concert series is hosted by The City of Elk River Parks and Recreation Department. You may want to contact them and hopefully they will address your concern and consider changes for upcoming concerts.

Are pets (dogs) allowed at the concert?
