LIVE in Grinnell ♫

It's finally summer, and we're kicking it off with a plethora of opportunities to catch some fabulous live music in Grinnell! 


Join us for Farmers Market this afternoon in Central Park from 3-6pm where we'll have live music from local artist Erik Jarvis and all sorts of fresh produce and baked goods. Be sure to stick around after you experience the market for the GMS Sixth Grade Choir giving a performance at 5pm comprised of hits from 'The Greatest Showman' at the Central Park stage as a pre-cursor to Music in the Park at 7pm which will feature the Community Band. 


Another sign summer is officially here: today was the last day of school for the Grinnell-Newburg district, pools and patios are open and the splash pad in Central Park is on for the season! And if that's not enough, our first Friday Night Live of the summer takes place tomorrow (Friday) evening beginning at 7pm in Central Park with live music from Damon Dotson. Admission to this event is free thanks to generous sponsorship from Hotel Grinnell, ASI Signage & Grinnell College! Beverages, food and additional activities are available for purchase.


If you've not gotten your fill of live music yet, you can catch the Prairie Burn 100post-race celebration (and join them for a gravel ride in the morning) in Central Park featuring live music Saturday afternoon and evening, beginning with the Cedar County Cobras at 3pm, Grassfed at 5:30pm and Aaron Kamm & the One Drops from 7:30-10:30pm. 


Wow! What a fun-filled weekend of live music in Grinnell. Make sure to check our community calendar for all sorts of other activities taking place now and throughout the summer.
