Got lunch plans for your Fridays this summer? Fridays by the Fountain, a 13-week lunchtime music concert series in Downtown South Bend, returns to the Morris Performing Arts Center starting June 3rd.


Held on Fridays between 11:45 a.m. and 1:15 p.m., each concert is free and takes place at the Jon R. Hunt Plaza in front of the Morris Performing Arts Center, 211 N. Michigan St. and showcases live entertainment from area blues, jazz, rock, R&B, country, folk, and Irish music bands.


“Fridays at the Fountain concerts are opportunities to hear music performed by talented people from this area,” Morris Performing Arts Center marketing and promotions director Mary Ellen Smith says. “You can relax, enjoy a beautiful outdoor setting, meet up with old friends or make new friends.”


This year’s lineup includes:

  • June 3 – Kennedy’s Kitchen
  • June 10 – Oblates of Blues
  • June 17 – Qsonics
  • June 24 – Hey Annie

Guests can bring their lunches or buy food from vendors on site. Although there will be tables and chairs set up at the plaza for concert attendees, people are allowed to bring their own chairs or blankets to spread out on the lawn.


No tax dollars are used to fund Fridays by the Fountain. The 2022 concert series is presented by the Morris in conjunction with U93 and WNDU. Supporting sponsors underwrite the cost of the bands.
