Tubing is back at Panther Island Pavilion

Rockin' the River returns for a 5th year! Come get your butt in the water and a beer in your hand and tube the Trinity River every Thursday—it's another summer of free concerts. Land lubbers are welcome too, so bring a blanket or chairs and enjoy the music from the shore. Top it all off with an awesome fireworks show and we'd call that a damn near perfect night.

When does it start? Where is it located? Where is the beer? Can I bring my pet armadillo, Rufus? Calm down, all the answers, rules & how-to's are here. Click on a topic below and you'll be an expert in no time.

What the heck 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 Coors 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. At 8:15 everyone must clear the water and return to the shore. Then, the After Party Band plays until 9:30 pm when the fireworks show starts.
Where are Panther Island Pavilion and The Shack?
395 Purcey Street, Fort Worth, TX 76102 (the old Tandy Center for those who've been around a while). This takes you right to our front gate and parking lots.
How much are tube rentals, beer and food?

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:

  • Food and Drinks
  • Beer and soda $4
  • Frozen drinks $6
  • A mess of good food from Salsa Limon is available
  • Rentals and Merch
  • Tube rentals $6 with a $2 token deposit which will be refunded when the tube is returned.
  • Kayaks, canoes, stand up paddle boards for rent.
  • Awesome tees, coozies and dry pouches for sale, too.
Do you accept both cash and credit cards?
You can pay with cash OR credit card.
Ok, free shows, but is parking super expensive?
From monster trucks to Smart Cars, parking is always free.
I have a group interested, do you have a package deal?

The 2015 Rockin' the River Series 4-Pack Pass is a deal designed to allow you and three of your guests to experience a summer of shows in VIP style for the entire 10-show season.


It's a great alternative to boring corporate event offerings, or a way to expose friends, family or employees to an experience that is uniquely Fort Worth. Or, why not split the cost between four friends and make it a summer to remember?

My dog would really love this, 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.


Since there is a fireworks show, please consider the noise level before you bring your dog. Loud fireworks often scare dogs and cause them to run away.

I have my own tube, can you inflate it for me?
If you want to bring your own tube you will need to inflate it yourself. 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 in with me?
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!
What if I want to come but don't want to get wet?
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!
What items are allowed and not allowed?
  • DO NOT BRING
  • No outside coolers
  • No outside beverages
  • No outside food
  • No glass
  • No styrofoam
  • No noise makers
  • No motorized watercraft
  • Ok to bring
  • I.D. (to drink alcohol)
  • Cash or credit card
  • River shoes
  • Sunscreen
  • Beach towels
  • Lawn chairs & blankets
  • Pets on leashes
What about my stuff, will it get wet?
Well, you're in a river. Seriously, we aren't responsible for wet, lost or stolen items. Take precautions to protect your stuff. Watertight drypouches are for sale to keep your phone, keys and wallet dry.
I know you serve beer, but is it kid-friendly?
This event includes loud music and alcohol. Please use discretion in bringing young children. Children less than 30” tall will not be allowed in the water. All children 12 and under must wear a life jacket while in the water. Life jackets will be available on site, free of charge (generously provided by Tarrant Regional Water District and Cabela's).
