The desire to bring bigger acts to the Liberty Bank Alton Amphitheater does not mean that the smaller events are being pushed aside.  The epicenter of Riverfront Park has been a home for community events, political rallies, and even weddings since it was first introduced to the public.  There are no plans to change that, according to Robert Stephan, member of the Alton Amphitheater Commission.

He says they are looking for a nice mix of events going forward.

The Tour de Cure – a cycling event to raise money to fight diabetes – is scheduled for the Amphitheater on May 31.  The Alton Police National Night Out will be held on October 7.
