This lineup reflects our continued commitment to bringing an eclectic group of artists to Meijer Gardens. Meijer Gardens intentionally curates the lineup of artists to provide a wide range of meaningful experiences each summer.
With beautiful, terraced lawn seating and spectacular views of gardens and sculpture, the 1,900-seat Frederik Meijer Gardens Amphitheater is Michigan’s most intimate and unique outdoor concert venue.
Meijer Gardens is also pleased to announce Concerts for the Community, a new initiative sponsored by The Steve & Amy Van Andel Foundation in partnership with the Kent District Library. This program will provide concert tickets, food and transportation to guests that may not otherwise have the opportunity to attend a summer concert. It is designed exclusively for those facing economic hardship and is meant to diversify community exposure to world-class live music. “Concerts at Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park are a favorite summer activity for our family,” said Amy Van Andel. “We are thrilled to be a part of the Concerts for the Community program and excited to help others make memories and experience the joy an evening of outdoor live music can bring.”
“We are deeply grateful to Steve and Amy Van Andel, Fifth Third Bank, Harvey Lexus of Grand Rapids, Spectrum Health and all our sponsors for helping make this series possible and allowing us to welcome more people to experience live music at Meijer Gardens.” said David Hooker, President & CEO of Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park.
