2015 "Free Fridays"
Concert Series

Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs

From August 7 to October 23, 2015, Downtown Gainesville
comes alive every Friday night  from 8-10 pm as our local and regional bands and performing arts
are showcased under the stars. Each year thousands come out to enjoy the FREE live concerts and shows in a family friendly environment.
“Free Fridays” opening was delayed this year due to the closure of the Bo Diddley Community Plaza for renovations. The City of Gainesville has purchased a mobile stage which is being manufactured and will be delivered in late July. The mobile stage will be placed in parking lot no. 10 at the corner of Southwest Second Avenue and Southwest Second Street in downtown Gainesville. This is the same location that the Union Street Farmers Market occupies on Wednesdays.
