Hello to our beloved Lagooners! We have big news – after two years of changed plans due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Lagoon Summer Concert Series will be BACK under the trees of the Lagoon this summer! We couldn’t be more excited to be with you all again – there are few activities we love more than summer evenings spent listening to our favorite bands with our favorite community.
The Lagoon Summer Concert Series has been a longstanding tradition in Fort Collins, and Mantooth Company has been the proud producer of this event for 25 years!
Each Wednesday evening from June 15 - July 27, the west lawn of Colorado State University’s Lory Student Center will be once again transformed into Northern Colorado’s favorite outdoor summer concert venue! Join us and make summer memories filled with food, community and music. Be sure to bring your favorite lawn chairs, your dogs, and your children – the Lagoon Summer Concert Series is guaranteed to be fun for the whole family. And if packing a picnic dinner isn’t your thing, you’re in luck – this year, several of our favorite local food trucks will be at the Lagoon each week!
Food trucks will be on-site at 6 p.m. – be sure to come and enjoy our fantastic lineup of fresh, local vendors! Then, settle in and enjoy the show – each concert will run from 6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. on the west lawn of Colorado State University’s Lory Student Center. If you get turned around, just follow the music!
June 15 – Funky Business: Funky Business is an energetic band based in Northern Colorado – their variety of classic funk, spirited soul, and contemporary pop covers will have you dancing, tapping, and singing along.
June 22 – Nothing But Nineties: Playing 90s music hits from grunge rock to boy bands, including your favorite 90s TV and movie themes, Nothing But 90s is guaranteed to be the (Rocko's Modern) life of any party. Embrace the nostalgia and wear your favorite 90s outfit!
