Summer 2021

Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Park at Manhattan Square, Rochester – NY
From the Producers of the Rochester Lilac Festival,  Party in the Park, and Midtown Eats, Rochester Events is launching its 2nd year of a new concert series to downtown Rochester: Live at MLK! Presenting incredible talent at Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Park at Manhattan Square! We are offering both GA and VIP tickets.

Proof of vaccination is required to attend Live at MLK! concert events.

Access to the VIP ULTRA LOUNGE -Front Stage Access! | ONE FREE BEER OR WINE TICKET 

FULL Cash-Bar | Light-Bites |  Air-Conditioned Restrooms

Table Service/Lounge Area

After many discussions and research, the producers and the City of Rochester have come to the conclusion that the best way to keep all guests, workers, and artists safe is to ask that everyone provides proof of vaccination.

New York State & Monroe County guidelines, require you to provide proof of Covid-19 vaccination. This can be done by presenting your Covid-19 Vaccination Record Card or by using the New York State Excelsior Pass.

You will also need to present Photo ID.

No, you will not be required to wear a mask at Live at MLK!.

Given that everyone in the venue will be vaccinated, and show proof of vaccination upon entering, no you will not have to maintain socially distanced.

While both the producers of Live at MLK! and the City of Rochester highly encourage that all who are eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine do so, we do understand that some people are unable to receive it. We apologize for the inability to accommodate those individuals at this time. We look forward to seeing you next season in 2022.

Individual, General Admission tickets (children 8 and under are free with the purchase of one full-price admission) & VIP Ultra Lounge Tickets are on sale at:

Live at MLK! is wheelchair accessible in that there are no steps to traverse in order to get into or out of the park. However, the majority of the area of Live at MLK! is grass, and it does slope as it gets closer to the stage. Therefore, the closer one gets to the stage, the more up-hill there is to get back to the top. Either entrance (the corner of Court St. and Chestnut St. or the Court St. traffic circle) is handicapped accessible. In addition, our VIP section is 100% ADA compliant, and each bathroom area is equipped with handicap bathrooms.

Patrons are permitted to bring in one sealed bottle of water. All other outside food, drinks, and alcohol are not permitted. There are many food vendors and alcohol booths at the event.
