20th Anniversary

The Lowell Showboat Sizzlin’ Summer Concerts, presented by LowellArts and Lowell Area Chamber of Commerce, began in 2001 and was one of the first free outdoor concert series offered in West Michigan. With the Lowell Showboat as a backdrop, this year’s concerts feature many groups who originated in Michigan and are now headlining nationally and internationally. 

Showboat City Social District in Downtown Lowell

The seating areas for the summer concerts are within the City of Lowell’s Social District. Alcohol, beer, and wine may be purchased by adults over the age of 21  from the participating restaurants, and can be enjoyed outdoors in the defined Social District areas. More info on the Social District in Lowell can be found here
