ONALASKA, Wis. (WKBT) – The remainder of the Great River Sound (GRS) concert series is canceled due to COVID-19 concerns.

The Onalaska Hilltopper Rotary Club previously announced the cancellation of concerts through July 14. Hilltopper Rotary spokesman Dan Stevens said, “When the first half was canceled due to COVID-19, we were hopeful that the county would relax its advisory restrictions as the summer progressed.  Unfortunately, events turned the other way as cases spiked and La Crosse County was moved into the severe category on the Coulee COVID Compass.”

Stevens added, “With 2020 being a bust, we are looking forward to the Great River Sound 2021 season. We expect most bands will return to Dash-Park with us next summer.”

Great River Sound was previously known as Downtown Sound and will have updates on its website and Facebook page.
