FREE CONCERT SERIES
Each year as summer rolls around, Eckert’s Belleville Farm gears up for another exciting Summer Concert Series. As a family-owned and operated business, we love planning outdoor concerts, and each year we look forward to bringing you a line-up featuring live music acts that get your hands clapping and your toes tapping. Once we have all the details in place, we post information about performers, dates and times on our website so you can make plans to attend.
Regardless of who’s performing, our music concerts are free to the public. That’s right. From Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend, you can enjoy live music at our farm every Friday and Saturday, and there’s no cover charge.
The talented musical artists who perform at our concerts represent a spectrum of music genres. Musical styles featured at our concerts include Americana, bluegrass, country, blues, folk, funk, jazz and rock. Some groups stick to one style of music while others play two or more styles. Whatever the musical genre, these musicians always put on a great show.
Kids and Pets Are Welcome
Our outdoor concerts are for music lovers of all ages. However, we realize that some kids may want to do other things than sit and listen to music, which is why there’s a bunch of engaging kid-friendly activities for them to enjoy. We have a unique playground that includes climbing and sliding activities.
It’s okay to bring dogs to the show, just make sure dogs are on a leash.
Eat, Drink & Be Merry
Eckert’s has plenty of food and beverages on hand during every concert. You can go to our biergarten to purchase drinks and food, find treats at our country store or enjoy a nice sit-down meal at our restaurant. With these fine choices, we kindly ask you to refrain from bringing outside food or drinks onto the premises. We strictly enforce the no outside food and drink rule, so please abide by it to avoid awkward moments and misunderstandings.
If snacks and light food isn’t enough for rumbling bellies, you can enjoy home-style comfort food at the restaurant. Order menu favorites such as fried chicken, mashed potatoes and green beans, meatloaf, country fried steak, burgers, salads and more. Be sure to save room for a slice of our delicious pie for dessert.
To ensure maximum comfort during concert performances, we highly recommend planning your seating arrangements ahead of time. You can do this by reserving a table for the concert. This way, you can leisurely eat while watching the entertainment with your family and friends.
