Free concert series | June 17, 2023 | Downtown Piqua
Music. Food. Fun. Beer. Community.
Hosted by the Piqua Arts Council and Mainstreet Piqua, the famous Rock Piqua! is a combination of various FREE concerts open to the entire community. In the past, Rock Piqua! has been composed of three free concerts taking place throughout the summer months. Since 2021, the event has become an all-day Food Truck & Music Festival.
The Festival features a full day of live entertainment from some of our region’s greatest bands, multiple food trucks, craft and domestic beer from local breweries, and a day of celebrating the art of music with friends and family of the great Piqua community and beyond.
The 2023 Rock Piqua Food Truck & Music Festival takes place on Saturday, June 17 from 3pm to 10:30pm held in Downtown Piqua. Enjoy a summer day celebrating the art of music, great food, an ice cold beer and, most importantly, the ability to gather together again with our community!
