The Bettendorf Public Library’s wildly popular Summer Concert Series is set to kick off its 8th season beginning June 6.
Each year, excitement around these concerts has been bigger and better than the year before, and this year is set to be the biggest and best yet! We have a variety of music for you to enjoy, and all concerts are free and family-friendly.
We’re starting off strong this year with Ten of Soul on June 6. Decorah’s Joe and Vicki Price, both members of the Iowa Blues Hall of Fame, will perform June 13. The good music doesn’t stop there.
The outdoor concerts are held at Faye's Field, located just south of the Bettendorf library on 18th Street. Concerts take place every Thursday from 6:30–8 p.m. beginning June 6 and running through August 8. There will be no concert on the 4th of July.
Performances will be held come rain, shine or oppressive heat. In case of inclement weather, the backup location will be inside the library at 2950 Learning Campus Drive in the Bettendorf Room. All attendees are encouraged to bring lawn chairs or blankets.
Food and beverage will be available for purchase on site, but attendees are welcome to bring food and drink to these performances. If the event is moved indoors, food and drink are still welcomed with the exception of alcoholic beverages.
Summer Concert Series 2019 is made possible by The Bettendorf Public Library Foundation with sponsorship from TBK Bank, Mel Foster and Build to Suit.
