A guide to all things Rockin’ the River. Everything from what to expect, start times and what things cost, this is your information station!

What is "Rockin' the River"?

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!

when does IT start?

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.

What does STUFF cost?

Hey, parking and admission are free, so that leaves more money for beer! Here’s the breakdown of all you might need some dough for:


BEER AND SODA $3

MIKE’S HARD LEMONADE FROZEN MARGARITAS $6

A MESS OF GOOD FOOD FROM SALSA LIMON AVAILABLE


TUBE RENTALS $6

PEDAL BOATS $18 / NIGHT

KAYAKS, CANOES, STAND UP PADDLE BOARDS FOR RENT

HOW MUCH TO PARK?

From monster trucks to Smart Cars, parking is always free.

Are pets allowed?

YES, on a leash. We are dog lovers for sure, but they must be on a leash AT ALL TIMES! And please, pick up after that critter. No one wants to step in your dog’s business.

CAN I BRING MY OWN TUBE?

Yep, if you love it, and you inflate it yourself, bring it. You can bring your own self-inflated tube, raft, kayak or anything else that floats...just nothing with a motor!

CAN I BRING my own COOLER?

NO. Coolers will be provided but must be returned at the end of the night. NO OUTSIDE COOLERS, BEVERAGE OR FOOD are allowed on site. Anyone that breaks this rule or is caught with outside beverages, will be asked to leave the event. Don’t be that guy!

can i enjoy from the shore?

We’ve got you land lubbers covered, literally. No need to get wet, The Coors Riverfront Ice House will be back by popular demand to you with shaded tables, bartenders, ice cold beer and live TV, so you never have to miss a second of the big game!
