About Riverwalk Times

Riverwalk Times is a free summertime outdoor entertainment series presented by the Library. Events are held outside on the spacious Riverwalk, overlooking the Clear River. With the library’s community wing available for cool drinks, bathrooms and air-conditioned breaks, this is a perfect summer venue. In case of rain, concerts aren’t canceled, they’re just moved inside!

Events Scheduling

Events such as outdoor movie screenings, plays, concerts, and performances of interest to the general public are being sought. If you are a musician, performer, story-teller, or artist and would like to propose an event for the series, please go to the Proposals Page and submit your idea.
