Downtown Country Jam Concert

Tomorrow evening, Shellabration, Inc. will be hosting their Downtown Country Jam Concert at the intersection of 9th Street and Central Ave in downtown Fort Dodge from approximately 5:00 P.M. through 11:00 P.M. Roads will be closed in the area beginning this evening, and will remained closed until early Sunday morning.

This event is expected to bring a significant number of pedestrian and vehicle traffic to the downtown area. We encourage those traveling in the area, as well as those attending, to use caution with the increased level of traffic. Parking will be allowed throughout the area in any designated public parking area. Please ensure public parking areas are being utilized without interfering with those privately owned spaces.

Concert goers and community members will see an increased presence of law enforcement throughout the weekend. In preparation for the anticipated large crowd, multiple agencies from around the region have been called in to assist to provide additional security in the downtown area and throughout the community over the course of the weekend. We are focused on the safety and well being of those in our community and are taking appropriate measures.
