Village Pointe Shopping Center will kick off its tenth season of “The Vibes at Village Pointe” summer concert series beginning on Saturday, May 25 and running through August 31.
The series features live band performances from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on Saturday evenings through the summer at the Alegent Creighton Health Amphitheatre stage located in center court. The genres of music performance schedule include a mix of jazz, blues, classic rock, country, salsa, and original tunes.
“Many of the bands in this year’s lineup are crowd favorites who have played our Vibes series for several years,” said Kim Jones, marketing director. “We’re also excited to showcase some new groups who have not played our venue before.”
An additional Friday night Vibes concert is also scheduled in conjunction with the first night of the Village Pointe Wine Festival on June 7 featuring local band Finest Hour.
As part of the concert experience, various merchant prizes will be offered to the audience each week along with free face painting, balloon art and other giveaways for kids.
Outdoor seating surfaces are available but concert-goers are welcome to bring along portable chairs as well. New Belgium beer selections and other beverages are also available for purchase at the Brew Patio beer garden located in the general concert venue. Participating Village Pointe restaurants will host the Brew Patio beer garden each week, including Firebirds Wood Fired Grill, Kona Grill, Cheeseburger in Paradise, Johnny’s Italian Steakhouse, Brix and new to hosting this year, BRAVO! Cucina Italiana. (No outside alcohol is permitted.)
Village Pointe Shopping Center’s extended summer weekend hours are 10:00 a.m. to 9:30 p.m., Fridays and Saturdays from Friday, May 24 to Saturday, August 31. (Some stores and restaurants hours may vary.)
