Area summer festivals are getting back on track after last years cancellations due to the COVID-19 pandemic. And, Gathering on the Green in Mequon is one of them, as they announced recently that there will be concerts taking place July 9 and 10th at Mequon's Rotary Park.
Country star Trace Adkins will headline the July 9 lineup, and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Cheap Trick will close the festival on July 10.
According to Rob Kos, executive director of Gathering on the Green in a statement said after careful, thoughtful planning for the last year the organization is incredibly excited and ready to resume the annual two-day summer music festival.
