Music in the Gardens begins June 7!

Music in the Gardnes

The Dubuque Arboretum & Botanical Gardens has been hosting summer musical performances for more than 20 years and this year will be no different!

Music in the Gardens, the arboretum’s free weekly summer concert series, begins June 7 and runs through Aug. 30. Performances this year will include Jim Busta’s polka band, Hunter Fuerste’s American Vintage Orchestra, the Kids From Wisconsin, a Beatles tribute, the Ridge Rangers, and more.

“We have an amphitheatre that projects the sound, people can get up and dance to the music, and we learn more about local artistic talent,” said Sandi Helgerson, the executive director of the arboretum. “The music venues from week to week are very diverse and there are also opportunities to explore the gardens before the event.”

Don’t forget to bring a lawn chair or blanket to sit on.

“Some people bring their own picnic dinner or wine,” Sandi said. “There will also be food available for purchase from HyVee.”

In the case of rain, about 100 people can fit under the pavilion. The bands will play rain or shine.

Sponsors make free admission possible, and Runde Auto Group is proud to sponsor Ralph Kluseman’s Beatles tribute at 6:30 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 30!
