Guests are encouraged to bring blankets to relax in Collection Park to enjoy the musical stylings of nine diverse cover bands to satisfy everyone’s musical tastes from reggae and classic rock, to country and Motown.

“Rock the Collection has become a summertime staple for the community, and this year we wanted to expand on the family-friendly event to keep guests coming back to celebrate the summer with us each week,” said Stefanie Muegel, marketing director for The Collection.  

In addition to an expanded entertainment line-up, the weekly event will also introduce a Groupie Garden and “Rock the Picnic” boxes.
