  • June 23-Root Doctor
  • June 30-James Reeser and the Backseat Drivers
  • July 7-Tomas Esparza Blues Experience

In case of inclement weather, the event will move to the Rotary Pavilion on the corner of Courtland and Squires streets. Parking is available at the South Squires Street parking lot, which is accessed from the Bridge Street entrance drive between Vitale’s and J.T. Stitchery or from the Main Street entrance drive north of the Rogue Valley Towers building. A short, pleasant walk north on the White Pine Trail will bring you directly to the park.
