RACINE — Live music is returning to downtown Racine!

From June 17 to August 27, you can head to Monument Square and listen to live music from a variety of genres. Bands will play from 4:30 p.m. until 7 p.m. every Friday and Saturday, with beer and soda available for purchase.

“We are excited to be able to offer so much free live music, from so many diverse genres. It’s a great opportunity for visitors and residents to explore downtown, go shopping, and have dinner at one of our amazing restaurants," said Kelly Kruse, DRC Executive Director.

Should there be rain on the day of a performance, the Downtown Racine Corporation said shows will be canceled and not rescheduled.

The corporation said parking will be available at the Lake Avenue Ramp, and the McMynn Ramp for $2 a day. There's also metered street parking available.
