    7:00 to 11:00PM | Apple Jacks at the Patch
    21534 Chestnut Road, Council Bluffs,
    White Catfish met along the banks of the Missouri River in Council Bluffs, Iowa. History reminds us that in 1804, Lewis & Clark made a similar nearby stop and named their camp White Catfish, inspired by a fellow explorer who caught a rare albino catfish.

    These six explorers of music include Dave Bergman (harmonica, vocals, guitar, banjo, melodeon), Sean Dunphy (guitar, vocals, banjo), Brett Ford (rhythm guitar, vocals), Quinn Damgaard (banjo, vocals), Charlie Schilling (drums) and Paul Hart (base). Their music is influenced by all things Americana with roots in folk, rock, country, bluegrass, and blues.

    Come jam with White Catfish and get a taste of how they like to shine.

    Apple Jacks at the Patch offers various wines from Prairie Crossing Winery as well as beer, food, and appetizers. We have bands almost every Saturday evening. Visit our Facebook page, linked below for a complete list.

    Live Music at Ditmars Orchard

    1:00 to 3:00PM | Ditmars Orchard & Vineyard
    19475 225th Street, Council Bluffs,
    Join us for music by Kid Nebraska!

    Bio: The band formed in the fall of 2017. Even though Josh Kidney was already busy playing guitar for Dylan Bloom, he wanted an outlet for the songs he’d been writing over the years. On a whim, he messaged Travis Muzney, a drummer who’d filled in for Dylan on several occasions. Travis jumped at the chance to start a band and brought along Jon Packard on bass. All that was left to round out the sound was a second guitarist. That’s when Josh called his longtime friend and guitar mentor Todd Laird. Once the four-piece was established, the band started practicing and booking. Their first single “Go” was produced and recorded by Matty Sanders at Fuse Studios and will be released on August 14. In October, the band will return to the studio to finish up their debut EP.

    Iowa West Foundation Trailhead Park, Council Bluffs,
    The Taco Ride takes place every Thursday evening on the Wabash Trace Nature Trail, from Council Bluffs, Iowa to Mineola, Iowa and back. The scenic ride is about 20 miles through the Loess Hills and ends with dinner at Tobey Jack's Mineola Steakhouse.

    Slightly more than halfway between the trailhead and Tobey Jack's, many riders will stop at a picnic area, nicknamed Margaritaville, for a quick break and to join in a conversation with fellow bikers or to partake in refreshments they brought with them.

    Note: The Taco Ride is a weekly event. It runs every Thursday evening during most of the year, weather permitting. Visit the Taco Ride website, linked below, for event news.
