Friday Night Live is back with food, fun and live music in downtown Rutland

UPDATE: Due to the weather the event July 21 will be held inside the Paramount Theatre.

Friday, July 21 at 5 p.m.—RUTLAND—Rutland’s favorite concert series returns this summer with free performances downtown. Folks can enjoy activities, giveaways, shopping, visiting vendors, food trucks, and more. Friday Night Live 2023 features the Uprooted band on July 21, Dirty Deeds – the AC/DC Experience on Aug. 11, and The Dave Matthews Tribute Band on Sept. 1.

Friday Night Live is a free outdoor concert series that takes place on Center Street with one performance each in July, August, and September. This fun and casual series draws the community together to enjoy music, outdoor dining, shopping, children’s activities and more starting at 5 p.m. Center Street transforms into a unique, amphitheater-like concert venue with great acoustics. Headliners take the stage at 8 p.m.

In addition to live music, attendees can enjoy outdoor dining in Center Street parklets or choose from a variety of food trucks. Purchase Downtown Rutland merch or sip on a Friday Night Live lager at the Rutland Beer Works garden where proceeds will benefit the VT Police Canine Association as an Ebbighausen donation.

Families can enjoy bouncy houses, activity stations, dunk tanks, giveaways and more. Be sure to save room for frosty treats and sweets from dessert vendors! Play giant games, shop local businesses, and explore vendors on Center Street and Merchants Row.

Attendees are encouraged to bring lawn chairs for viewing the musical performances. In the event of rain, the musical performance will be moved inside to the Paramount Theatre.
