The Salvation Army of Kent County will launch a new concert series this summer.

The Red Shield Summer Concert Series will feature family-friendly outdoor concerts at The Salvation Army Kroc Center’s outdoor amphitheater, at 2500 S. Division Ave. in Grand Rapids.

Each concert is free and will start at 7 p.m.

“We are thrilled to invite our Grand Rapids and Kent County community to join us for three nights of fun,” Divisional Commander Maj. Glen Caddy said. “All of our acclaimed musicians have ties to Michigan and will be providing us with memorable summer evenings at the Kroc. Everyone is welcome to attend, and we look forward to seeing you soon.”

Prior to each show, the first 200 attendees will be served a free grilled dinner from The Salvation Army’s mobile kitchen starting at 6 p.m.

Attendees are encouraged to bring their own chairs and blankets.

In the event of inclement weather, concerts will be moved indoors to the Worship & Performing Arts Center at the Kroc Center. Updates will be shared on The Salvation Army of Kent County’s Facebook page and Twitter account.
