Concert Schedule

The 2018 Concert Schedule will be posted as soon as it is completed. The 2017 Concert Schedule below provided spectators with great sounds and great vibes. Funding for these artists comes from donations by concert attendees and area businesses. Your generous donations are greatly appreciated.

All concerts are scheduled RAIN OR SHINE from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM at the Whitefish Township Community Center in Paradise, Michigan. If weather conditions are such that the concert needs to move indoors we have the advantage of moving the concert inside the center. So bring your lawn chair or favorite blanket and meet us out back between the community center and Whitefish Bay. There are no refreshments available so feel free to bring your own. In this effort, please help keep our bay area clean.
