A summertime tradition continues
Now in its 18th year, Roosevelt Summer Sundays continues an Ames summer tradition of free outdoor concerts at Roosevelt Park. Terrific local and regional bands take the stage each Sunday evening from June through mid-August. Come join us at the park!
Roosevelt Summer Sundays Concerts are produced by Friends of Roosevelt Park, and are made possible by generous contributions from our donors and sponsors. Don’t forget to sign up for our very occasional e-newsletter.
The decision to host each concert will be made two weeks prior based on the latest CDC guidelines.
Please monitor our website and Facebook page for the latest updates about our concert schedule.
