Community Rocks Bringing together the music of The Beatles, Billy Joel, Led Zeppelin, Heart, Metallica and many others with the sounds of a symphony orchestra, Community Rocks is an event unlike any other. Founded in 2014 by Minot State University professors Andy Bertsch (College of Business) and Erik Anderson, the philanthropic non-profit has raised more than $300,000 to benefit local organizations.

CR’22 will be held on Saturday, August 20 at the brand new Summer Amphitheater, on the campus of Minot State University. Doors open at 5:30pm, and the show starts at 7:30. Three sets of music from the 60s to the 90s, a live auction with 6+ signature items (Rolling Stones and Springsteen collectables and more), food, a cash bar, and more! 

In 2022, our primary beneficiary and partner in hosting the event will be the Souris Valley Animal Shelter: creating a better world for pets and people by advocating for animals and moving communities forward.

SVAS will be hosting events all day at Allen Field, just across the street from the new Summer Theater building, leading up to the concert event. An obstacle course, beer garden, food trucks, and animals will be part of the fun planned to raise money for this important local organization. Check out the CR and SVAS websites for full details, and look for updates and information throughout the summer on the CR Facebook page.

Tickets go on sale Tuesday, July 5th at Eckroth Music, Souris Valley Animal Shelter, and online. $60 Reserved/$45 General.
