Get your dancing shoes ready, Friday Night Live is returning to Belmont after a year away. Beginning this Friday, expect a great time with live music food trucks, a beverage garden, and kids activity zone downtown in an area for pedestrians only. Don’t be left out, this great event brings the entire community together.
Friday Night Live was started around ten years ago and typically brings 6,000 to 8,000 people to downtown Belmont. The city closes the streets to cars so it is safe for families to walk through all of the festivities. The event begins at 6 pm with a D.J. playing songs for an hour until the live music starts. The concert will end at 10 pm.
There are five concerts planned for this season:
- Friday, May 4: Coming up Brass
- Friday, May 18: Blackwater Rhythm & Blues
- Friday, June 1: Steve Ownes & Summertime
- Friday, June 22: The Entertainers
- Wednesday, July 4: Gary Lowder & Smokin Hot (This is part of Red, White, & Belmont festival and fireworks which includes food, family games and entertainment during the day as well as the concert in the evening followed by fireworks.)
The main stage is on Main Street near Stowe Park. The city is providing additional parking to accommodate guests. This parking will be behind City Hall and off Mill Street. Additional parking is in the works for the parking lot across the street from the General Store. Belmont also recently installed a Wi-Fi zone free for public use.
Last year, there were concerts in Stowe Park. They were such a hit that they will return in September and October. These may be in the park or on Main Street like Friday Night Live. Details are still being worked out at this time and dates have not yet been announced.
Be sure to check out this fantastic event, but if you want to drink alcohol, be sure to bring your I.D. There will be designated areas for alcohol.
Enjoy these beautiful spring and summer nights with great music and fellowship with the community.
