On The Roof

On The Roof is the region’s most unique concert experience. Throughout the summer months, bands and artists perform on the Rooftop Art Deck — an intimate open-air extension of the Arts Council’s Bower-Suhrheinrich Foundation Gallery overlooking Main Street in Downtown Evansville.

Performances are 7-10 p.m. on Saturdays through the summer. All On The Roof concerts are free and open to all ages. Enjoy music from the second-story rooftop, or from the ground on Main Street. A cash bar provided by Sauced is available at all concerts. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
