Downtown Summer Nights
Presented by Solarity Credit Union
Announces Lineup for 10 Week Concert Series
The sixth annual Downtown Summer Nights, Presented by Solarity Credit Union, will return to historic
North Front Street in Yakima, Washington for 10 consecutive Thursdays this summer, starting June 14,
2018. Each Thursday concert will run from 6PM to 9PM and will feature one regional or nationally
touring act and one local act. The YCH Hops Beer Garden will feature local craft beverages and will be
open to patrons over 21 years of age. The Sage Fruit Kids Area will feature games and activities for kids
each week. This is a free event that is open to the community and is produced by the Downtown
Association of Yakima, in conjunction with Chinook Fest.
This 10 week concert series has become a summer staple in Yakima, and the community continues to
embrace it year after year. With local food & art vendors featured and a kids’ area, this is a family
friendly event that serves as a perfect way to celebrate the home stretch of the work week.
The team at Chinook Fest, once again, has taken great care in bringing notable acts from around the
country to the Yakima Valley. This year is no exception. The lineup for Downtown Summer Nights 2018
is listed below and consists of regionally and nationally touring bands paired with local favorites week in
and week out.
Downtown Summer Nights is planned and coordinated by the Downtown Association of Yakima (DAY) in
partnership with Chinook Fest as DAY pursues its mission of making Downtown Yakima a Great Place to
Work, Play and Live. Downtown Summer Nights, along with the many other DAY managed events, is part
of a larger effort to revitalize the downtown core.
“Events are a prominent piece to what we are trying to achieve in Downtown Yakima,” says DAY
Executive Director,” Andrew Holt. “Downtown Summer Nights is a weekly event where folks can come
to the heart of Downtown Yakima and have a wonderful time with family and friends as they experience
the best that Yakima has to offer in music, locally crafted beverages, and food.”
