• Riverfront Concerts
May - Aug, 2015: The Community Riverfront Concert Series begins its season in May. Each Thursday evening at 7pm, South Haven's Riverfront Park will host a variety of musical performances, including jazz, classical, folk and contemporary. Concerts are free to the public.
Nestled on the banks of the Black River and located just one block west of downtown South Haven, Riverfront Park provides an ideal setting for the concert series. The performances are next to the marina with seating along a gently sloping grassy hill. Concert-goers will enjoy views of boats traveling on the river, as well as fantastic sunsets over Lake Michigan.
The concerts will typically last an hour and a half and are free to the public. You may want to bring a lawn chair or blanket to relax on. A light coat may also be appropriate as gentle breezes coming off the lake are common. In the event of inclement weather, concerts will be held under the pavilion in the Huron Street parking lot.
