Greater Mankato Songs on the Lawn

Greater Mankato Songs on the Lawn presented by Xcel Energy celebrated its 12th year, with the same fun flavor that has made it such a popular annual event. This summer tradition took place every Thursday in June from 11 am - 1 pm in Jackson Park adjacent to The Free Press and Brett's building. Admission is free and free parking is available throughout the downtown area. Songs on the Lawn gives co-workers, friends and families from all around the region an opportunity to gather in the City Center to enjoy live music from area bands. Attendees can also purchase lunch and snacks sold by a variety of local vendors.
