Rollin' On The River ~ Free Summer Concerts In The Park

Concerts in the Park

Summertime is a huge time of year for bands to hit the road and tour the country. This is when outdoor arenas and amphitheaters step up to book the best shows in town.  This year marks the 14th year of FREE community concerts at the Wingfield Park Amphitheater in downtown Reno during the month of July. Produced by the Reno News & Review, every Friday in July you can enjoy free concerts at the Wingfield Park Amphitheater.

The Wingfield Park Amphitheater is a beautiful stage situated along the Truckee River on the corner of First Street and Arlington, downtown Reno. This centrally located park hosts numerous concerts, art and cultural events throughout the summer. Get to the park early, save your place with your blanket then go for a swim in the Truckee River to cool off before the show starts.

Concerts in the Park

Celebrate summer by attending one, two or all the Rollin' On the River Free Concerts In The Park. Enjoy a wide variety of musical guests in a free, open, festival seating style concert. Bring blankets or low back chairs, whatever your comfortable with. Remember to leave all pets and alcohol at home!

July 2 : Maria Muldaur ~ Blues/Jazz/Folk

July 9 : Tempfest ~ Celtic Rock

July 16 : The House Jacks ~ Rock Bank Without Instruments

Free is good! The Truckee river is a beautiful place to kayak, canoe, or raft. Oh and the free concerts are pretty sweet too!

Kristin ~ Our weather has finally started to heat up! We are in the 90's, had a cool start. People love to jump in the Truckee river, it is cold snow water so it is very refreshing.

Craig ~ FREE is always good! You forgot to mention tubing on the Truckee River, people are always doing that! Crazy fun stuff.

Jane ~ It is amazing to see the people that like to swim in the downtown area of the River. They always look like they are having way to much fun.
