SumTur preview

SumTur Amphitheater.

SumTur Amphitheater is known for its wide variety of events throughout the summer and this year will be no different.

SumTur Amphitheater Manager, Doug Huggins said there are two sides to SumTur — recreational and ticketed events.

Huggins said this summer some of the ticketed events include the musical acts Sublime with Rome, Three Dog Night and Aaron Lewis. Tickets for these events can be purchased on and range in price depending on the section.

The ticketed events are outnumbered by the abundance of free activities being offered by SumTur this summer season.

Huggins said there will be numerous musical acts on the calendar including the Papillion Days opener Recaptured, a Journey tribute band.

“We are trying something different this year, on June 9,” Huggins said, “We are bringing in comedian Aubree Sweeney.”

Huggins said it’s the first time since 2010 SumTur has brought in a comedian and this event will be free to the public.

“One of her passions is animal care and so for this event we will be partnering with the Nebraska Humane Society,” Huggins said.

The community can bring animals and also donate to the Humane Society if it chooses. Huggins said SumTur is expanding on its Sunday series, SumTur Sundays, that consist of free musical acts. The full schedule can be found at

Huggins said there will be events created on the Sumtur Facebook page to help remind people of when things are occurring.
