Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park released the lineup for its 2022 Fifth Third Bank Summer Concerts.
Over 30 artists will perform at 33 concerts from June to September at the Frederik Meijer Gardens Amphitheater, at 1000 E. Beltline Ave. NE in Grand Rapids.
To ensure everyone can attend, Meijer Gardens started a new initiative called Concerts for the Community. It provides concert tickets, food and transportation to guests who might not have the opportunity to attend a summer concert for financial reasons.
The program is sponsored by The Steve & Amy Van Andel Foundation in partnership with the Kent District Library.
“Concerts at Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park are a favorite summer activity for our family,” Amy Van Andel said. “We are thrilled to be a part of the Concerts for the Community program and excited to help others make memories and experience the joy an evening of outdoor live music can bring.”
Concertgoers can carry picnic baskets with food, coolers and bags; however, they will be subject to security searches. The Eileen DeVries Concessions Center also will be open at Meijer Gardens.
“We are deeply grateful to Steve and Amy Van Andel, Fifth Third Bank, Harvey Lexus of Grand Rapids, Spectrum Health and all our sponsors for helping make this series possible and allowing us to welcome more people to experience live music at Meijer Gardens,” said David Hooker, president and CEO of Meijer Gardens.
