The popular outdoor summer concert series, "Knights on the Fox," returns early this year for its ninth season with its most diverse and energetic lineup yet. The five-week series will be held on the St. Norbert College campus on Tuesday evenings beginning June 21 and ending with the last show on July 19. The series will begin earlier this year to accommodate several construction projects taking place on the St. Norbert College campus. All five concerts are free and open to the public.

"Knights on the Fox" features local performers and a picnic atmosphere that's especially welcoming for families. Sandwiches, snacks, bottled water and soda will be available for purchase--or concertgoers can carry in their own picnics. Picnicking begins at 5 p.m., followed by the concerts from 6:30-8 p.m.

Concertgoers can come by land or by water, as the docks at the Thompson marina will be open. Ample parking is available in any of the lots on the St. Norbert College campus. Lawn chairs and blankets are suggested.

"Knights on the Fox" is sponsored by: Belmark, Inc.; William Buerschinger; Chuck Geurts and Theresa Rosik-Geurts; John and Kathy Lochner; Max Frost Company & Max and Susan Frost; Pomp's Tire Service; Inc.; Patrick and Vivian Rice; Ryan Funeral Home & Crematory; The Tess Families; Edward Thompson; Town and Country Electric; a division of Faith Technologies, Inc.; and Mary Watermolen.
