The last concert of June will be on a Wednesday instead of Thursday, and it will be held at Loggers Field in Copeland Park, while the riverfront prepares for Riverfest at the start of July.

This year, the Viking river cruise ships are scheduled to visit La Crosse on the same afternoon as two concerts later in the season.
