Middle Town Market
Each week through the summer, an area near Lake George in St. Cloud, MN called Middle Town Market comes to life. The Middle Town Market has grown to become an unforgettable experience of local food and vendors. From smoky BBQ, fresh sandwiches, super sweet sweets, to hand-crafted artistry and one-of-a-kind merchandise, you can spend hours walking through the aisles.
The atmosphere inside the Eastman Tavern ‘beer garden’ area is always lively. It’s nestled up just to the west of the performance stage and once inside, you can enjoy Coors Light, an assortment of craft beers, wine, and snacks.
The weekly activities in the Little George Town area are very well organized and staffed so your little ones can have a blast! Let the kids burn off some energy by participating in physical activities or arts and crafts each week during Summertime by George!
These sponsors help us deliver the best summertime experience for you and your family at Lake George! Let’s thank them!

Producing and managing a weekly music series for 12 weeks would be a challenge for any organization. That makes the success of Summertime by George! all the more impressive.
The summer events are created and managed with a volunteer workforce, Rotarians, most of whom are not experts in coordinating or staging events.
When two or more entities with similar goals come together, pool their resources, and work alongside each other, it’s impressive what they’re able to pull off. The City of St. Cloud and the Rotary Club of St. Cloud have been working together for years to make the community a better place for everyone to live.
There’s a legend about the origin of Summertime by George! Members of the Rotary Club of St. Cloud tell it with zeal.
There was a cocktail napkin, they say. Which has sadly been lost to history, they add.
Thanks to these amazing sponsors who help us bring live music to you!
