Bridge Beats
Free Friday Night Summer Concert Series


The Omaha Downtown Improvement District is thrilled to support this Downtown Riverfront event. Bridge Beats was created in 2013 by the Omaha Parks & Recreation Department to increase the liveliness of the Bob Kerrey Bridge Plaza with a yearly music series of concerts for families. Visitors enjoy free live music along with Missouri River views, time with family and friends, and walks across the Bob Kerrey Pedestrian Bridge.

Guests are encouraged to bring lawn chairs and blankets for seating.
