Nitefall on the River “takes a break” this summer, production team announces concerts at Water Works Park


One of Des Moines’ summer concert series is “on hiatus” this summer, and it’s not because of COVID-19.

Nitefall on the River will not occur in 2021 as their usual venues, Brenton Skating Plaza and Simon Estes Ampitheatre, are closed for the summer, according to a Tuesday morning tweet.

However, that does not mean that the concert season will not take place in Des Moines.

Nitefall’s production team, SA Presents, has announced several upcoming acts at Water Works Park starting this Saturday.

Here is the 2021 summer program:

Further acts will be announced over the summer.

McGee of Umphrey and The Dead South were two acts moved from Nitefall’s usual locations to the Lauridsen Amphitheater. Tickets already purchased will be honored.
