The Kerrville Parks and Recreation Department is in search of sponsors and performers for our upcoming Concerts by the River series.

This is a series of free concerts that will take place in Louise Hays Park, 202 Thompson Dr., on summer evenings at 7 p.m.

Concerts will be held on the following dates: June 18, July 17, and July 23. There will be live music and more. This is a great opportunity for the community to come out and enjoy an evening of fun and dancing in our beautiful Louise Hays Park.

“The purpose of our free Concerts by the River series is to bring people together to enjoy a relaxing yet stimulating social and cultural experience in addition to enhancing the quality of life by providing free entertainment opportunities for community members and visitors,” said Ashlea Boyle, director of Parks and Recreation. “The concerts will present a variety of different styles of musical entertainment in an atmosphere the entire family can enjoy.”
