The free Bands on the Bricks summer concerts take place at the historic Rochester Public Market, 280 N. Union St. on Friday evenings during the months of July and August. Generally the party gets cranked up with opening acts around 5-6PM, with the headliners coming onstage around 8PM. On a nice Summer evening it is a great place to bring a chair and enjoy some fine free tunes.
In addition to the free entertainment, food and beverage is available for purchase along with unique merchandise from several vendors.
Special ground rules prevent pets or outside food and beverage from being brought into the site, except one sealed bottle of water per person.
See the City of Rochester Bands on the Bricks website for this year's list of national and regional entertainers.
Vending spaces are available for vendors of unique merchandise during the Night Market. Interested vendors should call the Market at 585/428-6907 from 7a.m. to 1 p.m., Tues.-Sat. for more information.
