Free Outdoor Concert Series

Looking for live music in Kenosha, Wisconsin?

In the summertime, one of the Kenosha Area’s most distinguishing characteristics is that so many free outdoor concert series are offered here! That’s a lot of great entertainment for residents and visitors to enjoy. Musicians from the local, regional, and national circuit perform for audiences of all ages here in Southeastern Wisconsin. 

So pack the lawn chairs and blankets in the car, visit our local eateries to put together a tasty picnic basket, and plan to relax for a few hours as you listen to some great music. Then press “repeat” the next day, and the day after that!
