Music on the Dock is a summer concert series presented by the City of Ketchikan. Ketchikan musicians perform all summer long in the sunshine and in the rainshine - for friends and neighbors, and for our summer visitors! The Ketchikan area Arts and Humanities Council administers the concert series on behalf of the City of Ketchikan.

Performances are scheduled for high traffic cruise ship days and are always at noon. Each performer receives $100 remuneration up to $500 per ensemble.

In 2021 the City wasn't sure there would be visitors, so we are a bit late releasing the applications. If you would like to perform, please fill out the application as quickly as possible so we can get everyone schedule!!!

Performances begin as soon as July 15th and will continue until September 24th as long as the weather will allow.
