Bring family and friends for a wonderful night of entertainment at an Art Park concert this summer.

Cary Morin
Friday, July 1

blues, and rock.
The Timebombs

The Bootstrap Boys
Friday, July 22
The Bootstrap Boys are a four-piece Grand Rapids band with a fresh take on the classic country sound. Well-crafted lyrics, twangy guitar riffs, and steady rhythms keep your boots tappin’ and heart happy.

About the Art Park Amphitheater

Each week at Summer Sounds, the space itself nearly steals the show. The beauty of the forest setting makes this experience more than just an outdoor concert. It sets the stage for memories that last a lifetime.

The amphitheater was originally built in 1995 (rebuilt in 2014) and dedicated in memory of Jessie Frohlich. Designed by architect Bob Holdeman with the help of an acoustic engineer, it is created for the premium experience for both listener and performer.
