Riverfront Concert Series
August 22 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 7:00pm on Thursday, repeating until September 27, 2019
@ Riverfront Park
The Community Riverfront Concert Series begins its season in May. Each Thursday evening at 7:00 p.m., South Haven’s Riverfront Park will host a variety of musical performances, including jazz, classical, folk and contemporary. Concerts are free to the public.
Nestled on the banks of the Black River and located just one block west of downtown South Haven, Riverfront Park provides an ideal setting for the concert series. The performances are next to the marina with seating along a gently sloping grassy hill. Concert-goers will enjoy views of boats traveling on the river, as well as fantastic sunsets over Lake Michigan.
The concerts will typically last an hour and a half and are free to the public. You may want to bring a lawn chair or blanket to relax on. A light coat may also be appropriate as gentle breezes coming off the lake are common.

This is the fourth year that Foundry Hall has partnered with the City of South Haven to book and present the series for the residents and visitors of South Haven! It is our pleasure to produce this series for our community and put a lot of volunteer time and energy into the planning and presentation. If you would like to get involved send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We would love to have you on the team!
