Wow! Biggest crowd ever! Based on the number of wrist bands, drink tickets, parked cars, shuttle bus riders and drone footage, our “numbers guys” estimate 8,300 in attendance at last night’s concert.

Thanks for coming everybody!!Once again the weather was perfect for another great night at Rockin' Robbins for the final concert with Fabulous Armadillos.
A huge crowd made for a fun night wrapping up the 2021 concert series. See you next year!

I was there all 4 nights, it was awesome! There is no way 8,000+ people were there. Must have been counting the vendors, kids at the park that weren't watching, bus drivers, police, emts etc?

Dustin, did you make it to any of these concerts this year?

We always have a good time!!! Kudos to Willmar Rotary Club!!!!

Sounds like those number are a bit boosted 😆

8k people? No. Maybe 8k drinks sold.

What fun!

Awesome!!

That's so awesone!

That is we're we were last night

Wow...... Rocking Robin's Rock

What an amazing night on Robbins Island! The weather, the music, the food, the CROWD! It's hard to estimate how many people were there, but it was definitely our biggest crowd ever!

Photos from WEEK 4 are now online at www.RockinRobbins.com/photos. It's not hard to see the pure joy and excitement this event has brought to our entire community!

Our Willmar Rotary Club is so proud of what Rockin' Robbins has become and we can't wait to start planning for next year. Thanks everyone!

Oh goodness, quick correction! Tonight’s Opening Act Sponsor is Johnson Moody Schmidt and Kleinnhuizen, not Schmidt Thompson Johnson and Moody. I’m still stuck in the 90s, sorry guys!
