Free Concerts Since 1992

Since 1992, Chris Guggemos from Handshake Productions has organized these free, family friendly concert series. After more than 20 summers, these concert series have become one of the most anticipated community events of the summer. In addition to this season’s concert locations, Handshake Productions has, in the past, also produced concert series in Blanchard, Post Falls, Rathdrum, Spirit Lake, and Deer Park, Washington.

Every summer, Handshake Productions schedules great musical entertainment from the Inland Northwest. Over the years, the concert series have featured Rock ‘n Roll, Rhythm & Blues, Country-Western, Salsa, Bluegrass, Big Band Swing Orchestras, Irish-Celtic, and much, much more – and it’s all absolutely free!
