Rock the Block at NewBo City Market!

Rock the Block is NewBo City Market's free weekly concert series. Each summer a variety of local and national touring bands take the Bankers Trust Stage in the Market Yard and fill Friday nights with live music!


Rock the Block season passes will guarantee you a square of space of your choice throughout the summer. We are currently sold out of season passes. Additional space to sit and enjoy the concert is available, free, and open to the public on a first-come-first-served basis. You are welcome to bring lawn chairs.
