Area Activity Guide: Party in the Park

Rochester’s Favorite $5 Concert Series

For the 21st season of Party in the Park, the City of Rochester, Windstream, and CGI Communications have put together an incredible lineup of national headliners and local bands to rock your Thursday nights. In exchange for the $5 admission fee, each night of music will feature two acts on the CGI Main Stage and another on the Genesee Brewery Bowl Stage.

Thursday Night Fun for Everyone

Beyond the music, there’s something for everyone to enjoy. Local breweries, wineries, and rotating food trucks will be on hand with refreshments, and the Rochester Rhinos will be on site with players, ticket giveaways, and games. Families with kids can access both the park’s playground and a Family Fun Zone created by MVP Healthcare. So bring a blanket down to Martin Luther King Jr. park any Friday night June 15th through August 10th and spend an evening relaxing on the lawn.
