The Abe Stage, a destination to showcase alternative national, regional and local acts, typically features six to seven bands from noon to 9 p.m. on a stage located just inside Grandview Park at Grandview Avenue and 24th Street, Sioux City, Iowa.
This year’s schedule was announced May 15, and includes:
- Brother Ali
- The Magnolias
- Stop Motion Skeletons
- Goodbye Old Friend
- Tapwater Shrimp
In 2016, Sir Mix A Lot, legendary rap and hip-hop artist, played before the largest audience ever to play the stage, previously called Second Stage.
2017 will mark the 10th year since organizers Jason Reinert and Brandon Stowe brought back the Second Stage to offer national, regional and local music during the popular Saturday in the Park festival.
This year’s Saturday in the Park is July 1 and runs from noon to 10:30 p.m.
