Outdoor Summer Concert Series cancelled due to COVID-19 concerns

May 11, 2020 - The annual Summer Concert Series held at the Wall Amphitheatre at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls has been cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We are very sad to have to cancel the series, knowing the fondness our community has for this longstanding tradition which dates back to 1973,” said Elise Peters, UWRF events and activities coordinator. “The safety of our campus and community is our number one priority and given our current knowledge about how COVID-19 is spread, the cancellation was necessary. Campus events that bring together large groups of people have also been cancelled—including athletic camps and clinics through August 1. The Summer Concert Series falls in this category due to the large number of concert goers it attracts.”

Kids From Wisconsin has cancelled their season as well, according to Peters.

“Thank you for your continued support of the Summer Concert Series,” Peters said.
