Downtown Allegan is thrilled to announce the return of live music on the Riverfront Stage with Rollin’ on the River in summer 2021!

The free summer concert series begins Friday, June 11, and continues every week for twelve weeks until Friday, August 27. Live music starts at 7pm and continues for two hours.  Past performers including Asamu Johnson & The Associates of the Blues, Guitar Up!, and Hollywood Makeout make a triumphant return alongside bands new to Allegan audiences like The Bootstrap Boys, Modern Adventures, The Hacky Turtles, and more.

With the creation of the Downtown Allegan Social District, alcoholic beverages may be purchased at participating establishments and enjoyed throughout the designated area that includes the entirety of the Riverfront Park. For dinner and evening snacks, two food services along the Riverfront offer walkup window service in addition to other local restaurants located in Downtown Allegan.

Started in 2018 in an effort to bring regularly scheduled live entertainment to the Riverfront Stage, Rollin’ on the River enjoyed two successful summers until the COVID-19 Pandemic put a halt to gatherings last year.

“Rollin’ on the River quickly became a community favorite and was sorely missed last summer,” said Parker Johnson, Downtown & Promotions Manager for the City of Allegan. “The intent of this summer concert series is to focus on original music played by the countless talented musicians from around Michigan and beyond. There is a variety of music genres represented in each year’s lineup, something for everyone.”

Rollin’ on the River kicks off on Friday, June 11 with live music from 7pm-9pm and continues every Friday until August 27.
