This summer the Roots & Vines Festival will be moved to Saturday, June 25, at its usual location Historic N. Front Street, and its usual time 4:00 pm to 10 p.m.
Downtown Summer Nights will starts on June 9 and will run through August 11, taking one week off, June 23, in preparation for the Roots and Vines Festival.
Great music with nationally known bands performing for free in Yakima
Plenty of people are looking forward to the return of Downtown Summer Nights. The event features two bands that perform live for FREE. A press release from the Downtown Association of Yakima says "many of the bands have national and regional followings. Folks can grab a bite to eat from local food vendors or enjoy a cold refreshment in the beer garden featuring local craft beverages, find a spot to relax, and enjoy the music or visit with their neighbors."
