Party downtown: Sidewalk Stage issues schedule

Posted By on Tue, Jul 9, 2013 at 5:15 PM

Today, the Downtown Partnership announced the schedule for the first week of its inaugural Sidewalk Stage series, a juried and planned set of family friendly performances held downtown on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays July 11 through Aug. 17.

Per its press release, over 25 groups are slated to perform — spanning music, dance, circus acts and more — and all will be paid (so "tipping is not expected").

Here's the opening week schedule. More will be announced soon:
