It's another summer of free concerts. Come beat the heat and tube the Trinity River every Thursday. Land lubbers are welcome too, so bring a blanket or chairs and enjoy the show from the shore. Either way, it's the coolest seat in town.
In the event of bad weather, shows will move indoors to The Shack,
located near the Panther Island Pavilion parking lot gate.
A guide to all things Rockin’ the River. Everything from what to expect, start times and what things cost, this is your information station!
It’s a free weekly summer concert series with a cool twist, the stage is right on The Trinity River in the shadow of downtown Fort Worth. You can enjoy the show floating in the river or, if you’re a land lubber, bring a chair or blanket and enjoy a great view from the shore.
The Headliner plays on the Waterfront Stage first then, on the Southshore Stage, The After Party Band keeps playing right up to the nightly fireworks show. We offer tubes to rent, great food from Salsa Limon and cold beer to boot. It’s a uniquely-Fort Worth experience!
It’s always beer thirty on Panther Island, but on show nights, gates open at 4:30 pm and the Headliner plays from 6:45–8:15 pm. Then, the After Party Band plays until 9:30 pm when the fireworks show starts.
