What is AquaPalooza?
AquaPalooza, in case you haven't heard, is the biggest single-day boating event at the Lake of the Ozarks. This amazing concert on the water takes place from noon-5 pm, with even more awesome entertainment happening in the evening once its over.
Thousands of people attend this annual event at our Lake of the Ozarks waterfront bar & restaurant every year, by land and by lake. Hundreds of boats will be parked in and around our docks for a prime view of the lakeside concert, but you can both hear and see the stage from the restaurant too, and it will be just as packed up there!
People come from all over the country to attend this awesome party. The waiting list for dock slips alone fills up a year in advance, but no worries, because all of the boaters that don't get a slip simply tie up to each other and fill the entire cove with watercraft. In between those boats, the lake is filled with people on floaties, sitting back, relaxing, and having a great time with all the new friends they're meeting.
As we mentioned, AquaPalooza can also be enjoyed from the restaurant. We've got the Dog Pound cranking out drinks as well as the swim-up bar at the pool. This year we've also got our brand new Wooftop Patio open for business with the most amazing view of the Lake of the Ozarks you've ever had the pleasure of seeing, especially on a day like this!
2018 Music Lineup
Every year the most entertaining live acts hit the AquaPalooza stage, and this year is no exception. We've got 4 incredible bands lined up to keep the party going all day long.

Don't expect the party to end once the last act leaves the stage, though, because we've got even more live music headed your way on our regular stages that night! First up, DJ Dr. Cheese and Taz the Drummer will entertain you from 6-10 pm, followed by Chad Bearden rocking the house 10 pm-close.
