2021 Summer Concert Series at UW-River Falls cancelled due to COVID-19

The annual Summer Concert Series held at the Wall Amphitheatre at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls has been cancelled for summer 2021 due to COVID-19 concerns.

“We are very sad to have to cancel the series again, knowing the fondness our community has for this longstanding tradition which dates back to 1973,” said Elise Peters, UWRF events and activities coordinator. “The safety of our campus and community is our number one priority and given the uncertainty of the vaccination rollout and COVID-19 in general and the large crowd the concert series draws, the cancellation was necessary.”
