The announcement was made Friday afternoon on the Live on the Banks Facebook page.


The series, which typically runs from May through September, has been delayed due to COVID-19 social gathering restrictions. This year, it will run through the end of October in order to accommodate the numerous musical artists who have committed to performing, and to provide the community with even more outdoor entertainment.

“We are excited to be able to kick off another season of Live on the Banks,” said Tim Ross, Director of Public Events. “Although it’s getting a later start, we are happy that the community will have the opportunity to enjoy music along the riverfront this summer and fall. We do ask everyone to help us make the season a success by maintaining the proper social distance and staying home if you are not feeling well.”

Organizers are asking visitors to follow CDC and state social distancing guidelines. Face masks are encouraged.
