25th Season of the Summer Music Series Brings Celebration and Change:

We are pleased to announce the 25th Season of the Summer Music Series. These free concerts have a rich history of bringing together our diverse and vibrant community in our beloved downtown in various locations to celebrate music and dancing. Our downtown has experienced tremendous growth right alongside this annual free summer music celebration which first started in 1998.

As we have done many times in the past, we are making some changes to the format. Downtown Jazz will not see any changes, with 5 concerts in Corpening Plaza starting on June 23rd. We will be relocating our Saturday night concerts from Liberty Street to Fourth Street between Poplar and Spruce (right in front of Foothills Brewing). Saturday night concerts will begin on June 17th and the event will be renamed Summer On Fourth. In 2016, we moved Summer on Trade to Liberty Street because we outgrew Trade Street, and now in 2023 we are moving to Fourth Street for the same reason, outgrowing our event space. We thank everyone for their support over the years and we hope that everyone will enjoy our 25th Season of the Summer Music Series.

2023 Season: 

We are excited to announce the 2023 Summer Music Series will be returning for its 25th season.  We are grateful to all of our sponsors who make the Summer Music Series possible.

Summer on Fourth will start on June 17th at 7 PM.

Downtown Jazz will start on June 23rd at 6:30 PM. – Heat Delay Alert:  Friday, August 25th will be starting late at 7:30pm because of high temperatures.
