First Concert of 2022 Announced!

Liz Vincent, Director of Community Enrichment for the City of Pontiac, is excited to announce the first Rockin’ at the River Concert of 2022!

“We’re excited to bring these free, family-friendly concerts back to the community this year,” she said, “it’s been amazing watching people from throughout the community and beyond enjoy the beautiful setting of Humiston-Riverside park, the wide variety of music, and the sense of community that comes from these events.”

The first concert will be held Thursday, June 9 at 7PM and will feature Radio Gaga.

In a parallel universe where rock stars are immortal, Freddie Mercury and Lady Gaga meet and serve as muses for each other. The friendship blossomed as they pushed the limits of artistry and showmanship, breaking down every barrier that inhibits our imaginations from running wild. This unlikely partnership produced such a creative renaissance that the public could not be denied the opportunity to witness it. Radio Gaga takes the stage and delivers a tour de force featuring two of the world’s largest musical icons. For the first time ever, you will hear all the hits of Queen and Lady Gaga in this Vegas style production show, complete with eye-popping costuming, dazzling choreography and unmatched showmanship. Prepare to be wowed as the vision and spirit of these performers emanates from the stage, delivering the “Concert That Never Was”.

These concerts are free, family friendly, and open to the public. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own chairs or lawn blankets, a small number of chairs will be available to use on a first come first serve basis. Vendors will have food available for purchase or you can bring your own snacks or dinner to enjoy. Please note that Pontiac Parks are smoke and alcohol free.

Additional concert dates for 2022 will be announced soon, please visit or for more details.

The Rockin’ at the River Concert Series is presented in part by a grant from the Illinois Prairie Community Foundation.
