Nokian Tyres, Rhea Heritage Foundation Announce 2023 Summer Nights Lineup

  • Thursday, May 25, 2023

Nokian Tyres and the Rhea Heritage Preservation Foundation announce the music lineup for the 2023 edition of Nokian Tyres Summer Nights, a series of concerts taking place every Friday night in June on the Rhea County courthouse lawn.

The fourth annual event will feature live music from local bands, food vendors, informational booths from area organizations, and a tire giveaway on the last night of the festival.

Here are the dates and artists:
Friday, June 2 – The Sullivan Band
Friday, June 9 – Rhea Springs Revival
Friday, June 16 – Summer of Love
Friday, June 23 – Common Ground
Friday, June 30 – Gigi and Friends

Festivities start at 7 p.m. each Friday in June and end around 10 p.m. The event is presented by the Rhea Heritage Preservation Foundation, which exists to celebrate the history and culture of Rhea County through diverse programs, exhibits and preservation of resources.

Nokian Tyres sponsors the event as part of its commitment to serving the community where it operates an award-winning production factory. The company is currently hiring 125 workers and doubling production at its Dayton Factory, where it makes all-season and all-weather tires for the North American tire market.

Nokian Tyres opened the Dayton Factory in 2019 and will employ more than 450 team members at the facility by the end of the year. It won Company of the Year honors from the Chattanooga Regional Manufacturers Association in 2021, and it was the first Rhea County company to earn the prestigious Tennessee Governor’s Environmental Stewardship Award for its environmental efforts. Nokian Tyres recycles or reuses all production waste generated at the factory.
