Live Music Now Canceled on Friday At Rochesterfest in Rochester, Minnesota

According to a message that we just received at Townsquare Media Rochester, the National Weather Service has instructed Rochesterfest to shut music down for the rest of Friday.

Due to weather, D'Sievers Band and Incognito will NOT be playing at Rochesterfest on Friday, June 28th, 2024.

We're bummed but due to the inclement weather, the remainder of the Rochesterfest activities planned for today have been canceled.
Tomorrow will be beautiful and we can't wait to see everyone at the Grand Parade and all of the other fun events planned throughout the day!
