Meijer Gardens Cancels Popular Summer Concert Series Due to Pandemic
In response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, it is with deep disappointment and a heavy heart that Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park announces the cancelation of the 2020 Fifth Third Bank Summer Concerts at Meijer Gardens concert series. In statement, the organization said: The safety of our guests, volunteers, staff and touring crews is our top priority. We are exploring options to present local and regional performers as part of a modified Tuesday Evening Music Club series later this summer should the COVID-19 situation improve.
“Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and after close consultation of government issued public health pronouncements and orders and numerous conversations with our concert promoter and others, we have made the extremely difficult decision to cancel this year’s Fifth Third Bank Summer Concerts at Meijer Gardens,” said President & CEO David Hooker. “We are looking forward to a summer full of live music once again filling the Frederik Meijer Gardens Amphitheater in 2021 and we’ve already begun planning the 2021 Fifth Third Bank Summer Concerts at Meijer Gardens” added Hooker.
Fifth Third Bank Summer Concerts at Meijer Gardens are made possible in part by the generous support of Fifth Third Bank, Harvey Lexus of Grand Rapids and Spectrum Health. Media sponsors are FOX17 and Star 105.7. Additional support is provided by Life EMS.
