A summertime tradition continues
Now in its 15th year, Roosevelt Summer Sundays continues an Ames summer tradition of free outdoor concerts at Roosevelt Park. Terrific local and regional bands take the stage each Sunday evening from June through mid-August. Come join us at the park!
Roosevelt Summer Sundays Concerts are produced by Friends of Roosevelt Park, and are made possible by generous contributions from our donors and sponsors.
A grassroots music venue, Roosevelt Summer Sundays is a staple on the Iowa music scene. Our donors and sponsors keep the music playing year after year by giving to Friends of Roosevelt Park, a registered 501c3 nonprofit organization. All donations directly support RSS and Roosevelt Park, and are gratefully accepted.
