This article will be updated with more opening artists and bowl acts as we get them.
One of the most popular musical events in Western New York is the annual Windstream Party in the Park series in down town Rochester. The concerts moved back to the picturesque Manhattan Square Park last year – saving people from the infamous “Party in the Parking Lot” downtown. Tickets are a wallet friendly $5. Party Packs (for the general public) are available for $35 for tickets to all 9 shows and access to an express entry line – available at the Blue Cross Arena box office. Food trucks, local beer selections, and vendors will be on site every week. Regional bands will be featured on the lower “bowl” stage while the headlining acts will play on the main stage in the field next to the skating rink.
Things kick off this year with Buffalo’s own moe. coming to town June 18. Jazz legend Taj Mahal comes in on June 25 George Clinton will funk up the place on July 9. Another Buffalo act – Aqueous – will open for the legendary Victor Wooten on July 30. Hometown heroes Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad will close things out on Aug 13.
PITP is held every Thursday from June 18 to Aug XX 5-10PM. All ages. Parking available at several nearby garages. Check the website for more info. Check out the full lineup below.
