Summer Concert Series
- Attractions & Entertainment
A FREE FAMILY FRIENDLY LIVE MUSIC EVENT!
It may still be cold outside, but planning is already underway for the second annual Summer Concert Series. These concerts are to be held in the newly Revitalized Downtown Maquoketa on the second Sunday of each month, May through September.
Brielle Reicks, event co-chair is excited about the 2017 events, sharing “our inaugural season was outstanding with over 2500 community members enjoying music in our historic downtown” and she added, “...''even with the challenges of the main street project and the lack of parking and easy access to the event space''.
Expectations for 2017 are high, shared Angie Petit Lichter, co chair of the event: “we are so honored to bring different genres of music to the community while plans are in the making to bring back some of the 2016 favorites.” Reicks and Lichter are joined on the committee by Tom Devine and Matt Notz, Maquoketa Chamber Executive Director. The Maquoketa Chamber sponsors the series with generous funding this year given by the Iowa Tourism Council, Community Foundation of Jackson County and the Maquoketa Betterment Corporation.
