Rocking the roof – free Curbside Concerts are back

Curbside Concerts are back, this time with a spring series running through Elkhart Jazz Fest weekend.

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 bartender, and he’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.)

Zach DuBois shares his Nashville songs and stories as our opener on 7 p.m. Friday, May 13. We’ll wrap up the six-week series with a special jazz fest after party on Friday, June 17 – a 10 p.m. start time for LowDown Brass Band.

The full spring schedule:

  • May 13, 2022 – Zach DuBois (RSVP here)
  • May 20, 2022 – Darryl Buchanan and the Soul Motown Allstars (RSVP)
  • May 27, 2022 – Anna p.s. (RSVP)
  • June 3, 2022 – Tumbleweed Jumpers (RSVP)
  • June 10, 2022 – High Gravity (RSVP)
  • June 17, 2022 – LowDown Brass Band (special 10 p.m. start after festival fireworks; RSVP here)

The 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 watch the band 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.
