Parties on the Parkway Schedule Released


Parties on the Parkway is returning in 2021 with a full schedule of events. The annual summer concert series dates, bands and times are featured below. Residents come out each year to locations along St. Joseph’s parkway system to soak up some sunshine, enjoy refreshments and listen to some great local and live music.

The events are the second Thursday of the month, and residents are encouraged to come out after work with friends, colleagues and family. Pets are also welcome!

Admission is FREE so there’s no reason not to join the fun. Please note: some food and beverage vendors are cash only. The series is hosted by the St. Joseph Chamber of Commerce and the City of St. Joseph. Its presenting sponsor is Nodaway Valley Bank.
