Rockin’ at River Rhapsody concerts this summer

Fri June 10, 2022

It’s time to rock out along the Riverwalk as the much-loved River Rhapsody concert series returns to downtown Batavia.

The Batavia Park District’s summer cultural arts concert series begins on Wednesday, June 15, and continues into August. This concert series features a variety of lively and eclectic musical acts that are sure to strike a chord regardless of one’s taste in music.

Concerts are from 7-8:30 p.m. at the Peg Bond Center band shell, 151 N. Island Ave., nestled along the Batavia Riverwalk and picturesque Depot Pond. No registration is needed for these free concerts.

Back by popular demand is the option to purchase red or white wine, provided by Acquaviva Winery, during the concerts. New this year is a special treat: an assortment of savory and sweet food options, on sale from Fernando’s Street Kitchen and Koconuts Shave Ice.

Fernando’s Street Kitchen will have irresistible street tacos for sale, along with some favorite Mexican fare featured at their Batavia restaurant.

The Batavia-based shave ice truck features an array of flavors, such as mango, root beer, piña colada, and wedding cake, along with various candy and cream toppings. Your pooch won’t be left out as they also offer puppy ice.

Concerts scheduled this month are on June 15, June 22 and June 29. We will take a break in honor of the Fourth of July, and resume on July 13.
