Downtown Summer Nights happens Thursdays nights all throughout summer. This free event starts at 5:00 p.m. on 4th street behind the Capitol Theatre. Before you head straight there, here are a few things you should consider bringing.

  • Cash

    Even though admission is free, you should bring a few bucks to grab a bite to eat, buy something from one of the various vendors or partake in the beverage garden.

  • Sunscreen

    Downtown Summer Nights starts at 5:00 p.m. The sun hasn't set yet so better wear sunscreen, just in case.

  • Your Smartphone

    Broadcast to the world that you're at Downtown Summer Night by checking-in on Facebook or Foursquare. Tweet, Facebook, Instagram - all of that, using the hashtag #dsnyak so you can also see what everyone else is up to.


  • Your Friends and Family

    Hey! It's a free event! Why not bring as many people as you can and turn it into a party!

  • Your Kids

    In what could be your children's first concert experience, bring the kids to dance to the live music or play in the kid's activities area.

  • Comfortable Shoes

    4th Street is on asphalt so wearing comfy shoes is probably the way to go.

  • Folding Chair

    Not that you need to bring a chair, but they're welcome to prop up to sit and enjoy the show.

  • An Extra Bag

    Even if you don't bring it with you, may be a good idea to keep in your car so you can carry all the cool stuff you'll be picking up from the vendors.

  • Your Tailfeather

    So you can shake it to the live music.
