Downtown Friday Nights is off and rolling!


The 5th season of Downtown Friday Nights, and the 11th season of live music each Summer in Downtown Spearfish has started!  Chancey Williams and the Younger Brothers kicked off the year on a picture perfect June 12th evening.  Next up is 32 Below, followed by a stellar line up all Summer long. 


In addition to the music, your favorite activities have returned as well.  The Kids Zone, Food Vendors, and of course, great shopping are all back, not to mention the beverage stations where you can get a cold beer.




Don't miss a minute of the fun this Summer - join us Downtown each Friday Night!  Don't forget to visit your Downtown Merchants as well - the Downtown Business Association puts on this free event each summer, so show them some love for their efforts!

Downtown Friday Nights Kicks Off June 12th


For the 11th straight Summer, Downtown Spearfish will be jammin' to some great tunes as Downtown Friday Nights kicks off yet another season, and the Band Line-Up is once again top notch.  Started in 2005 as First Fridays, the event went to a weekly format in 2011.  Since then, crowds have grown exponentially, topping over 5,000 people at times.

This year, DFN starts a week later in an effort to avoid some of the early chilly weather, but will make up that week in September when we have the final event on the Friday of Labor Day Weekend.

Food vendors, kids activities, and several "beverage" stations will be back as well, so don't miss a week of the fun - head Downtown every Friday Night all summer long!
