    Thurs Night Live Going on RIGHT NOW in Lexington!

    Jun 12, 2018

    Downtown Lexington is your #1 location for summer fun and socializing, and no event demonstrates that so clearly as Thursday Night Live.

    Nothing says "summer" quite like live music, and every Thursday from April to mid-October, you can catch free performances from some of the hottest local bands downtown at the Fifth Third Bank Pavilion at Cheapside Park. Find company in other music-lovers and friends while enjoying some of Lexington's best food trucks and drink vendors. What more can you ask for in the heart of downtown Lex?

    This year, Thursday Night Live is back and better than ever with veteran favorites such as Better off Dead and Driftwood Gypsy as well as some newcomers. Genres range from country to bluegrass to psychedelic rock. Whether the music is your cup of tea or not, the vibe of live music, camaraderie, and good feelings will easily please even the toughest of critics.

    Parking can be scarce on these busy nights, so consider carpooling with some friends or calling an Uber to save yourself some trouble!
