About Opelika’s Summer Swing Concert Series

A free concert every Tuesday! That’s the quick and easy summary. At Opelika’s Summer Swing Concert Series, you can jam out to local musicians and maybe even discover a new favorite group. Each concert offers a new performer—and the series spans many genres.

Fun fact: they also give out free lemonade! If you’re hungry, buy some hotdogs and burgers from the Opelika Band Boosters for the quintessential summer dinner and to support a local organization. They will prepare the burgers and dogs for a nominal fee from 6:15 to 7:30 p.m.

For all the fun, show up early. From 6:30 to 7 p.m., they also give out free rides on The Rocky Brook Rocket.
