New this year! The Rockin’ the Route 66 Kickoff Concert and street party will feature the number one cover band in America – the Emerald City Band at 8:00 p.m. – and will attract new interest to the festival and provide an opportunity for diverse entertainment for all ages. This Thursday night concert will also provide a chance for community members and visitors alike to celebrate coming out of the pandemic and set the stage for future economic vitality and recovery efforts to be promoted during and following the highly anticipated festival.

Before Emerald City takes the stage, be there at 6:30 p.m. for local band, Static in the Attic, featuring former Springfield City Manager Greg Burris, Missouri State University Deputy Provost Dr. Chris Craig and Jeff Lowry, playing eclectic acoustic rock.
