Rock on with Ludrock!

Just when you thought the summer in Ludington couldn't be filled with even more fun and entertainment, Ludington area graduates organized Ludrock, a wonderful event enjoyed by tourists and locals alike. In 2016 this will be held July 9-10 in Ludington's Rotary Park (formerly City Park). Held on a weekend close to Ludington's popular Freedom Festival, Ludrock features live music from local bands and musicians, and it's a don't miss event for the entire family. New in 2016 will be a Kids Crafts Area. Food, drinks and event memorabilia are available for purchase. Ludrock raised a record-setting $37,000 in 2015.

Ludrock is a nonprofit organization inspired by the power of music to benefit the identified needs of the Ludington area. Ludrock's vision is to motivate and inspire current and future generations of musicians and provide an outlet to give back to the community.
