“The City of Gering is committed to being good stewards of Five Rocks Amphitheater while cultivating public/private partnerships that facilitate entertainment opportunities and family-friendly experiences for residents and visitors,” Karla Niedan-Streeks, Director of Tourism for the City of Gering said. “KNEB Radio and the Nebraska Rural Radio Association are well-respected for the vibrant and diverse community events they sponsor and support; and the City is excited to collaborate with KNEB on these exciting events at Five Rocks this summer.”
Another show, planned for Saturday, July 15th, will be announced in the coming weeks.
“We really wanted to bring a concert back to Oregon Trail Days,” Boyer added. “While we cannot announce details yet, we are looking forward to bringing in a very high quality show to Five Rocks on OTD weekend.”
