Inclement Weather Policy

Please review the TSWS Weather page. If alternate week concert providers feel that you need to move to the rain site, please contact a board member as soon as possible in the day, no later than 3:00pm on the day of the event.

Types of weather for which events might be moved to a rain site include severe thunderstorms predicted; long daytime rain yielding mud at the park; and temperatures with heat indices above 100 degrees F.

For regular Tri-State Wind Symphony concerts, the decision will be made and the players will be informed via email and Website Message Board, and possibly Twitter and Facebook as well by 4:00pm.

The current rain site is officially Westminster Presbyterian Church at 2155 University Ave, Dubuque, IA 52001 in the sanctuary. It may be possible that, for a given event, the location will be changed. If so, players will be sent an email, and the Message Board will be updated to reflect this change.

The rain site has in the past officially been the ballroom (downstairs) of the Mosaic Lodge of the Masonic Temple at 12th and Locust streets, where we have rehearsal.

Board Members: Upon receiving notice of a move to rain site or cancellation, you will need to contact the following:
