This summer marks the 13th year of the Twin Falls Tonight weekly concert series in downtown Twin Falls with surprises in store for celebration veterans and first-timers alike.
Attendees can expect food from local vendors, free music and family fun in the same beautiful setting of the Fountain Park on Main Avenue as in years past. But this year boasts new bands, an expanded schedule and the added feature of “Market on Main” with local food, crafts and artists running alongside the series on the opposite end of Main each week. Festivities span the summer beginning June 20th and running through August 22nd from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. every Wednesday night with the exception of the Fourth of July.
This results in nine events where the series previously ran only six. Robin Dober, who participates on the Twin Falls Tonight Committee, explained that the main complaint heard in the past was the series not lasting long enough. With redoubled efforts to increase sponsorship and help from a variety of local businesses they were able to make it happen.
Due to increased popularity of the concerts, those who attend are encouraged to come early (average attendance per concert in previous years ranged from 800-1200 people), bring their own seating and their whole families. A bounce-house is provided for kids while beer and wine sales are available for the over-21 crowd leaving the gatherings fun for all ages.
