Music, water, and balmy breezes just before the sun sets over Lake Michigan – a perfect end to a day on summer vacation! And, they are free summer concerts!
Bring a blanket or lawn chair, but not your money, to enjoy the music at Riverfront Park in South Haven during the summer months.
On most Thursday evenings from the end of May through August, concerts are performed in the park adjacent to the south side of the Black River*, treating concert-goers to a variety of music that includes blues, rock, country, reggae, classical, and jazz.
Sponsored by the City of South Haven, in partnership with Foundry Hall, a local organization that works to preserve and promote the performing arts in South Haven, the concert series is very popular with community members and vacationers.
Concerts start at 7 pm and generally last about an hour and a half. After the concert, stroll down to the end of the park to the beach front and catch the sun as it dips below the horizon. Or walk up to the nearby restaurants for a night cap or ice cream.
