Friday Night is Downtown Night in Staunton

Friday evenings in Downtown Staunton will go interactive on Aug. 24 when the Staunton Downtown Development Association hosts seven weeks of free live music, art, theater, dance, and games.

Activities will be scattered throughout the downtown district every Friday night from 6-9 p.m. through Oct. 5.  Friday Nights Downtown is part of the SDDA’s Extended Hours Program, a promotion that encourages later evening shopping and dining through incentives.  Thirty stores and restaurants are participating in 2012.

Friday Nights Downtown is being produced this year by Ampersand Arts, a local non-profit production company known for staging innovative plays, improvisation and dance events.  Staunton Parks and Recreation and the Staunton Music Guild will be contributing to the activities, as well as many local performers.   Entertainment is free and family-friendly.

SDDA Executive Director Julie Markowitz has this to say about this year’s Friday Nights Downtown:

“Downtown is definitely the place to be on Friday nights. Ampersand Arts has done a great job of creating a full schedule throughout the District and I’m sure that the community will enjoy the variety.  They will see activities and entertainers that they haven’t seen before. The street entertainment adds a lively atmosphere and it’s fun to walk around and see everything that will be going on, shop or have dinner.”
