Celebrate Summer with Grafton Music in The Park

Pull up a lawn chair, bring a cooler of beverages and celebrate the long, hot days of summer at the annual Grafton Music in the Park concert series.

The Grove Memorial Park becomes a local outdoor music venue every Thursday from June through August as some of the best local musicians take the stage.

From classic rock and oldies but goodies, to traditional bluegrass and honky tonk country, Grafton's riverfront along the confluence of the Illinois and Mississippi rivers comes to life.
