Most Thursday nights in June and July, Concerts on the Rooftop are held at the William T. Evjue Rooftop Gardens of the Monona Terrace Community and Convention Center.
These concerts are so popular you need to get a ticket through Eventbrite to attend. However, the “tickets” are FREE (they are more of a way to control the number of people attending each concert). The concerts feature bands from a mix of genres like blues, 80s rock, country, folk, and reggae.
Gates for the concerts open at 5:30 p.m., and the music starts at 7. You can bring in blankets, lawn chairs, and a picnic basket, but not alcoholic beverages (which are sold on the premises). Most beer and wine costs $7.50, and specialty drinks (like the popular sangria) costs $9.
In case of inclement weather, the concerts will either be canceled or moved inside the Monona Terrace
