Celebrating 10 Years of the Sound Downtown Summer Concert Series in Brackenbury Square

Lewiston, ID- The Sound Downtown Summer Concert Series is back and better than ever! This year, Beautiful Downtown Lewiston is proud to celebrate 10 years of bringing music to the heart of their community. Every Friday in June and July (with the exception of July 30th in observance of the 4th of July Holiday) join them in Brackenbury Square for a fun-filled evening of live music, food, and community spirit.

Over the past decade, Sound Downtown has become a staple of our community. BDL is thrilled to have hosted some of the most talented musicians from around the region and has seen crowds grow in size and enthusiasm each year. This year, they have an incredible lineup of musicians who are sure to entertain and inspire.

To commemorate their 10th anniversary, they are excited to announce that they will be selling limited edition commemorative merchandise. From t-shirts to lapel pins, stickers, and more, you can take a piece of Sound Downtown home with you. In addition, they will be doing special giveaways throughout the summer, so be sure to follow them on social media for a chance to win!

To kick off the series BDL will have not one but TWO stages on main street. The headliner will be located at Brackenbury Square with an additional band hosted on New 6th Street next to Bumper Crop Coffee. There will be local performers during the early evening and then roll right into the live music starting at 6PM. Chairs will be provided for this location but feel free to bring your own if you’d like.

“I can’t believe we will be celebrating 10 years of Sound Downtown,” said Brenda Morgan, Executive Director of Beautiful Downtown Lewiston. “This event has become an important part of our community, and we couldn’t have done it without the support of our sponsors, volunteers, and attendees. We are excited to continue to bring the joy of live music to Brackenbury Square for years to come.”

Between the two locations, there will be many food options to choose from. Start on New 6th Street with some fresh local coffee at Bumper Crop Coffee. If you’re hungry, try some Ono food from IMUA Hawaiian Restaurant, baked goodies from Skalicky’s Sweet Sensations Bakery, or a sip of wine from Vine 46. Closer to Brackenbury, we have Main Street Grill offering a wide selection of foods for the whole family. Ampersand will be offering their boxed dinners, Tapped will be open in their new location, Brava’s will be serving up incredible dinner specials and to-go cocktails, and Blue Lantern has your favorite pick me up to round out the night. These are only a handful of options available in the downtown corridor with many more to choose from. Visit the BDL website Business Directory to find out more!

Beautiful Downtown Lewiston would like to thank its sponsors Idaho Central Credit Union, St Joseph Regional Medical Center, Size-Mo Professional Sound, Century 21 Price Right, Happy Day Restaurants, and My Architect for their continued support and for making this event possible. As always, they want to remind the community to support the businesses that consistently elevate the downtown corridor to make this a great place to live, play and explore. A big thank you to the City of Lewiston for creating a space where the community can host these wonderful events. The Brackenbury Square upgrades are due in part to the Business Improvement District and the City of Lewiston’s Parks & Rec department. Thank you for investing in this space for our community members to enjoy.
