Piedmont Natural Gas Downtown Alive has kicked off its 2018 season. So dust off your boogie shoes and join the fun.
The season continues every Thursday night through August 30th. More than 45,000 people attend this event annually. The event serves as the single largest fundraiser for the Metropolitan Arts Council. Piedmont Natural Gas Downtown Alive opens at 5:30 pm and closes at 8:30 pm. Bands play two sets at 5:50 pm and 7:20 pm.
New for 2018, Downtown Alive will host Bites + Beats on the first Thursday of every month featuring local food trucks at the event.
