Concert Series Headquarters Tent

The Local Store

The Volume One / Local Store tent at the top of the hill is the official concert series headquarters. It's packed with interesting local items including music from performing acts, community-minded gear like t-shirts, art prints, gifts, stickers, and more. It's also where you can grab a concert series schedule, as well as copies of Volume One and Hot Spots. It's also the safety center for helping out with lost kids, minor first aid, and other info.

Dhimiters Gyros

Q: How can Dhimiters gyros be so good? A: They use 70% lamb - 30% beef. Highest lamb to beef ratio in town!

We cater events of all sizes, offer classes for Adults and Kids, and serve Chippewa Falls and Eau Claire from our food truck.

Davis Dogs

Davis Dogs currently serves up 16 different styles of hot dogs, ranging from a reuben dog to a mac and cheese dog. Davis's top-selling dish is the Chicago dog, but he recommends customers try one of his signature hot dogs, which include nacho, taco, blue bacon, and bacon cheddar ranch dogs.

A Few Reminders

to help us all enjoy the concert series ...


Alcohol is only allowed in the immediate labyrinth area, and during Thursday concert hours (6-9pm) only. Regular laws and fines are in effect on all sidewalks and streets throughout the neighborhood at all times. Once you leave the concert area, if you’re on the sidewalk or street with ANY open containers, you are in violation of city code. That’s a $213 fine – and what’s worse is if you screw this up you could ruin it for everybody. (Official language below.)


Thursday nights, the parking lots in the area get full pretty fast. Consider biking or walking to the event whenever possible to keep congestion down. In fact, that’s the way to experience the park and the concert series in full.

If you do need to drive, the parking garage on the corner of Farwell and Gibson St. is the best option. The rate for parking is 50¢ per hour effective 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.


At this time, pets are welcome at the concert series. However, keep pets under control at all times (and of course, pick up after them). If you choose to bring a pet, for the comfort of everyone (including small children), please consider staying on the outskirts of the event where you have plenty of room and keep them on a leash.


The public restrooms are located to the north of the labyrinth area, next to the Farmers Market Pavilion. Others are located to the east of the Royal Credit Union building, near Barstow Street. You can easily walk to either of them from the concert grounds.


There is a city ordinance prohibiting smoking in city parks.

9.52.030 Consumption or the possession of open containers on streets.

The consumption of or possession of a container which is open and which contains fermented malt beverage or intoxicating liquor as defined by the statutes of the state of Wisconsin, which are herein incorporated by reference, on the streets, sidewalks, alleys or boulevards of the city, is prohibited except at such times and such places as may be specifically exempted temporarily from the provisions hereof from time to time by the city council in connection with public celebrations. This section prohibits the above acts even though the person who violates them is within or upon a vehicle or other conveyance. (Ord. 3684, 1976; Ord. 3300 §I, 1972; Ord. 3157 §I, 1970; prior code §5.01(b)).
