With the creation of the Downtown Allegan Social District, alcoholic beverages may be purchased at participating establishments and enjoyed throughout the designated area, which includes all of Riverfront Park.

For dinner and evening snacks, two food services along the Riverfront offer walkup window service in addition to other local restaurant located in downtown Allegan.

Rollin’ on the River started in 2018 in an effort to bring regularly scheduled live entertainment to the Riverfront State, enjoying two successful summers until the COVID-19 pandemic started last year.

“The intent of this summer concert series is to focus on original music played by the countless talented musicians from around Michigan and beyond,” said Parker Johnson, downtown & promotions manager for the City of Allegan. “There is a variety of music genres represented in each year’s lineup, something for everyone.”
