Since its successful debut in 2013, Yakima’s Downtown Summer Nights concert series has become an integral part of Yakima’s summer music scene. Each Thursday, come dance and enjoy a cup of your favorite craft beverage in the heart of downtown on Historic North Front Street. The event is FREE and open to all ages. This year’s 10-show series will run from June 13th through August 22nd*
Each week features two bands and a bustling beer garden pouring your Yakima Valley craft favorites and outfitted misting tents for those especially hot evenings. For the whole family, an activities area, food from Front Street restaurateurs and plenty of room to kick up your heels right in front of the main stage.
*There will be no Downtown Summer Nights on July 4th, 2019.
You’ll find us downtown on North Front Street between Yakima Avenue and Pendleton Way (just outside of North Town Coffee House), every Thursday night starting at 5:30 PM on June 13th through August 22nd, 2019 (excluding July 4th).
Bands start at 6PM and play until 9PM.
Each week features a 21+ Beer Garden pouring the best beer, wine and cider the Yakima Valley has to offer.
Bring the whole family and enjoy arts and crafts with the kiddos at the Activities Area. Don’t forget your concert chairs if you’d like to relax in front of the main stage to enjoy the tunes. Pack your dancing shoes and grab a partner to dance the evening away under the setting sun or snap a few photos in the sidewalk photo booth.
Enjoy shopping a variety of local food, merchandise and informational vendors which line the street every week.
ATM will be available for spending at any “cash only” vendor. And for the especially hot nights take a moment to cool off in the misting tents.
