WNKU Presents 10th Annual Tunes & Blooms

Tonight's Tunes & Blooms with Hickory Robot and Buffalo Wabs & the Price Hill Hustle has been canceled due to inclement weather.  A make up date will be announced soon.  See you next week for The Cliftones!

It's hard to believe it's been 10 years since we first partnered with the Cincinnati Zoo to bring you Tunes & Blooms.  What started out as a one-time concert in the cold rain before a crowd of about 100 people, now regularly draws close to 5000 people every week.  It really is the place to be every Thursday night in April.  Tunes & Blooms features some of the best musical acts our region has to offer playing amongst the tulips of the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden. Each week, the Zoo dispenses with the usual admission fee at 5pm allowing visitors to roam the animal exhibits for free before settling down to enjoy live music from 6p to 8p.  Bring a picnic or choose from the excellent food options available on site.  They even serve local craft beer at the Zoo.
