CM Press Release: Guess the Band, Get a Hotel Stay for Legacy Weekend

Minnesota music fans can guess which popular 90s Alternative Rock band will play August 21 at the Down by the Riverside concert for a chance to win a hotel stay and welcome package in Rochester for the August 18-21 Legacy Destination Weekend.

The Think Mutual Bank Down by the Riverside Free Summer Concert Series is a seven-week-long series in Mayo Park, behind the Mayo Civic Center, is funded in part by the Clean Water, Land, and Legacy Amendment voters passed in 2008. The final concert of the year, the “big one,” coincides with Legacy Destination Weekend in Rochester, which also includes events at the Rochester Civic Theatre, Rochester Art Center, Quarry Hill Nature Center, and local parks and trails.

“Legacy Destination Weekend will showcase many of the arts, history, and outdoors projects in Rochester, but this concert will be the finale,” said Chris Alcott with Riverside Concerts, “and while we can’t announce the big name that’ll play on August 21, we can let everyone in on the fun of guessing.”

The name of the band and the winner will be announced at the Riverside Announcement Party on Thursday, June 16th at the Thursdays On First, Coca-Cola Third St. Stage. In the event of multiple correct answers, one fan will be chosen at random. Fans make a guess at:

“From its parks to its trails to its theaters and museums, Rochester is a vibrant community that has benefitted greatly from the Clean Water, Land, and Legacy Amendment,” said Paul Austin, Executive Director of Conservation Minnesota, one of the organizers of Legacy Destination Weekends, along with Explore Minnesota Tourism and Minnesota Citizens for the Arts.  Learn more at or search #mnlegacy on Twitter.
