Concession Street BIA launches SIDEWALK SOUNDS
A 3rd Friday of the Month Music Series from May to September. 7pm to 10pm.
After a year of construction the businesses on Concession Street are ready to celebrate with the community this spring and summer.
SIDEWALK SOUNDS is inspired by the James N. Art Crawl and Concession St.’s traditional Streetfest (which will be hosted this year on Saturday August 13th )
The Concession Street BIA is working in partnership with the Hamilton Music Guild’s MUSIC IN THE CITY to provide a high caliber music crawl.
There are 6 outdoor music stations that run from 7pm to 10pm. Sidewalk Sounds creates an atmosphere for the Hamilton community to enjoy the sounds of local Hamilton musicians while visiting the storekeepers and businesses of Concession Street.
"As a BIA, we wanted to improve our events and celebration of our businesses. The marketing committee challenged itself to create an event that occurs with more frequency and includes a larger number of our of our members.” - Jason Hofing, Concession St. BIA Marketing Chair.
