Rocking the roof – free Curbside Concerts are back

Curbside Concerts are back for the fall of 2022.

The shows are free. Bands play on our roof, so bring camp chairs and watch from our parking lot. We sell beer, wine and soda from our curbside pickup window – ask the bartenders, and they’ll probably hand over the library book you’ve been wanting, too.

Count on spending your Friday nights in downtown Elkhart with great local music under the stars. (In case of rain, we’ll move the music indoors to the library atrium.)

We’re super excited about this lineup, and we’re pleased to announce our special guest for Sept. 23 – Paul Erdman! With his move away from the area, Paul expects to be playing fewer shows in Michiana – we’re glad to have him in this stellar lineup.

All shows start at 7 p.m. this fall:

That Guys Gourmet Ribs will be our food vendor for three of the shows – Sept. 9, Sept. 23, Sept. 30 and Oct. 7. Acapulco Bakery and Restaurant will be bringing their food truck for the shows on Sept. 16.

Bands will play right above our downtown curbside pickup window that’s open six days a week (get all the details on our curbside service here).

People can bring chairs watch the shows from the library parking lot, which will be fenced and open to all ages (only the marked alcohol sale area is 21-and-over). Parking is available on the street or in nearby municipal lots. Musicians have been welcomed to bring merch to sell, and the library accepts cash and card.

In the event of bad weather, the library’s doors at High and Second streets will open at 6:30 p.m. The bar will be open inside.
