EVENT: Vermillion’s beloved annual concert series, Thursdays on the Platz, is returning this July. A summer favorite, Thursdays on the Platz, held in historic downtown Vermillion, will continue to bring free, live music on the National Music Museum stage. This event is open to everyone and takes place every Thursday from July 9 through August 27 from 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm.
COVID - 19: 2020 will see some changes with the event now taking place from Ratingen Platz and down Main Street to Court Street to allow for social distancing measures. Attendees can rest assured knowing thorough cleaning protocols will be implemented and volunteers/staff will be wearing masks to provide a safe space for the community to enjoy the festivities. All attendees are encouraged to wear masks and practice social distancing. Due to the difficulty of fully disinfecting materials, seating is limited.
