Entertainment

At Five Rivers MetroParks, we’ve got as many events and cultural activities scheduled as we have wooded trails. From live local musicians at intimate lunch locations to main stage regional acts under the pavilion at RiverScape, there are options for every taste.

Intimate music and dance performances happen regularly throughout the summer at RiverScape MetroPark.  Take a break from the hustle and bustle for live lunchtime music on the banks of the Great Miami River from May – September.  Summer also features larger big band, progressive bluegrass, and R&B concerts on select Friday nights in the pavilion.  Bring your own chair as seating is limited during these events.
