NEWPORT- The Cocke County Partnership's Chamber of Commerce will again host a series of concerts this summer along the beautiful City of Newport's Riverwalk. The dates for “Rhythm on the River” are June 7, June 21 and July 5 and July 19. The events are free and affordable food offerings will be available.
"We are so glad to be bringing back Rhythm on the River again," said chamber of Commerce Director Lynn Ramsey. “We invite folks to bring lawn chairs or blankets. Bring a football or a frisbee and we'll have cornhole and other games for the little ones. We hope it is a relaxing, enjoyable evening."
Sponsors for the event are Jefferson Cocke Gas Utilities, Sonoco and Commercial Bank. Joining them are ConAgra, Ball Packaging, Bush Brothers, Newport Utilities, Tennova, Tevet, Newport Paving, McSpadden, Rafting in the Smokies and Wilson's Sav-Mor Drugs. More sponsors are Eastern Plating, Newport Federal Bank, Fisher Insurance, US Bank, SI Group, Smoky Mountain Home Health and Hospice, Thermocopy and Phoenix Closures. Rounding out our sponsors’ list is Tennessee State Bank and Newport Lions’ Club.
"We are so thankful to all our sponsors," added Ramsey. "We could not do this without them and a special thanks to the City of Newport for all their help in making this another wonderful summer of music on the Riverwalk.”
Kicking off the series on June 7 is Grits from Dumplin Valley. Gracing the stage on June 21 will be Marshall Law, on July 5, Jigsaw Jane will perform and Pacer & the Sundowners will end out the series. Entertainment will start at 7:00 pm.
Come on down and find your spot and relax before the concert starts if you like. We will have food and games setup by 6:30 pm.
