First two downtown Topeka summer concerts cancelled



TOPEKA, Kan. – The first two shows scheduled for the downtown summer concert series have been cancelled due to COVID-19 concerns.

The Rock and Food Truck Festival was scheduled for July 25th, and the County and Food Truck Festival was scheduled for August 22nd.

“It became clear to us that the best course of action, given current public health concerns, was to forgo this year’s CoreFirst Bank & Trust Concert Series, at least in the months of July and August,” said Vince Frye, president of Downtown Topeka, Inc.

“If the situation changes, we hope to be able to hold the Jazz and Food Truck Festival in September. However, if we’re unable to do so, we will instead focus our efforts on providing an excellent experience to concert goers in 2021,” Frye continued.

The group has not decided if they should cancel the final concert series of the season.

The Jazz and Food Trucks Festival is tentatively scheduled for September 26th.
