Rockin' Robbins

As seen in today’s West Central Tribune! We are so VERY GRATEFUL to all our sponsors who help us pull off Rockin’ Robbins every year.

It takes a lot of financial support and in-kind donations to make the magic happen each summer, so please make a special point of thanking these local businesses for all they do to support our community. We absolutely couldn’t do it without them!

Photos from WEEK 4 with opening act Ryan Van Slooten and headliner, The Fabulous Armadillos, are now on our website at rockinrobbins.com/photos. We are so appreciative to Dennis Benson and Linda Fostervold for taking all these amazing shots! Also, a huge shoutout to our Jumbotron camera operator — Dave Hillenbrand from the City of Willmar. They are the REAL DEAL and we are so lucky to have them on our team!

Thanks also to our Opening Act Sponsor, Johnson, Moody, Schmidt, Kleinhuizen & Zumwalt P.A., and to our Presenting Sponsor, Lakeland Broadcasting. And another shoutout to Willmar Rotarian Dave Lady for killing it on the National Anthem!

Thanks for the memories, RR fans! We'll see you again in 2024!

Photos from WEEK 3 of Rockin' Robbins are now on our website at RockinRobbins.com/photos. Once again, thanks to Kandiyohi Power Cooperative for sponsoring our opening act, West Addison Blues; and thanks to Mills Automotive Group for presenting our headliner, The Crown Jewels - A Tribute to Queen.

Another HUGE thank you to our photographers, Dennis Benson and Linda Fostervold , for their amazing talent and generosity of time.

Tuesday, August 1st will be our FINAL CONCERT of Rockin' Robbins 2023! (How did that happen already??) Our opening act is the Ryan Van Slooten Band sponsored by Johnson, Moody, Schmidt, Kleinhuizen & Zumwalt P.A., followed by everyone's favorite closer — the Fabulous Armadillos, presented by Lakeland Broadcasting.

Fingers crossed and knocking on wood... it looks like we're in for a beautiful stretch of calm, dry weather, so come on out to Robbins Island Regional Park and help us close out this year's concert series with our biggest crowd yet!

See you at the Island!

Loved the opening band! I didn't care for the main band at all. Excited for this week though.

Looks like a lot of fun 😄

We’d like to give a big shout out to Pam Vruwink and Willmar Bikes for running our NEW AND IMPROVED Bike Corral each Tuesday during Rockin’ Robbins!

Located at the Guri Shelter next to the playground, our check-in/check-out system is quick, efficient and secure. And best of all it’s FREE! Check it out!

Photos from WEEK 2 of Rockin' Robbins 2023 are now on our website at RockinRobbins.com/photos. Photo credits to our talented man-behind-the-cam, Dennis Benson!

That crazy, stealthy Tuesday night rain showed up again at exactly the wrong time, but not before our headliner, Free and Easy, pushed their way through most of their second set. All in all it was a great night, with perfect weather for opening act, Pirates, Guitars & Beachfront Bars, and a great vibe from all our RR fans! Many thanks to our Opening Act Sponsor, Westberg Eischens, and our Presenting Sponsor, TerWisscha Construction, Inc.

Next week, we have a CRAZY LITTLE THING CALLED The Crown Jewels - A Tribute to Queen scheduled as our opening act, so get ready, because WE WILL ROCK YOU! Presented by Mills Automotive Group, The Crown Jewels play all your favorites Queen hits with equal parts musicianship and showmanship.

You'll also want to get to Robbins Island by 5 PM to catch West Addison Blues; West Central Minnesota's Premier Blues Brother Act, sponsored by Kandiyohi Power Cooperative. Jake, Elliot and the rest of the boys from Chi-Town will get you shaking your tail feathers during our opening act, so add it to your calendar right now!

Can't wait to see you for WEEK 3!!
