Summertime by George 2021

July 28, 2021 @ 5:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 5:00 pm on Wednesday, repeating until September 1, 2021

Summertime by George! is a free concert and festival put on by the Rotary Club of St. Cloud at the local and beautiful Lake George Park in downtown, St. Cloud! The area is transformed into a fun and active place every Wednesday with free live music from local and regional bands, local vendors, artisans, and a kid’s zone for the entire family to enjoy!

Sponsored by St. Cloud Rotary Club, this free 11-week event will be held every Wednesday starting in June and running through August. The event occurs from 5:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m. each Wednesday night, with the opening acts starting at 5pm and the featured artist starting at 6:30 p.m.

Safety Measures: While the state COVID-19 restrictions for outdoor crowd size and masking have been removed, the Rotary Club is still taking extra precautions to ensure a safe event such as more handwashing and sanitizing stations. Plus, there will be a COVID-19 vaccine clinic sponsored by CentraCare and Stearns County Public Health from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. for the first six weeks.

Besides the music, there is a bunch more fun to be had…

Middle Town Market: A shopping and dining market featuring local food vendors, hand crafted artistry, and one-of-a-kind merchandise that you can spend hours wandering through. 

Eastman Tavern: This is best described as a “good ole” beer garden. Up by the corner of the stage, they serve an assortment of beer, wine, and snacks. 

Little Georgetown: Kids love the weekly activities and fun in the Little Georgetown area, with arts and crafts, physical activities, and more.
