Rhythm on the Rails is a FREE, six week outdoor concert series, that takes place on Wednesday nights from June 22 & 29, July 13 – 27, and August 3. Each nightly concert runs from 6:00-9:00 pm on Lewis Street in Downtown Shakopee. Our annual Rhythm on the Rails features top-notch live music, family fun & games, food and brew vendors, and so much more!

The evening kicks off with local opening acts, followed by not-to-miss regional headliners. Attendees will have the option to purchase food and drink tickets at the front gate, enjoy a free kids zone for some family fun, and experience a beautiful and historic Downtown Shakopee, while enjoying great company and live music throughout the night.
