Reenergized return of Friday Night Sound Bites

Reenergized return of Friday Night Sound Bites
Posted on 03/03/2022

Friday nights just got better! The Public Market’s Friday Night Sound Bites series is back for the outdoor season. Join us for free, live music and rotating, local food trucks on the patio every Friday night.

Food and drinks are available for purchase from the Public Market merchants and guest food trucks outside. Patio seating is available, but we encourage BYOC—bring your own chair.

Hours will be adjusted throughout the season to avoid cool spring/fall nights and beat the summer heat.

  • April 1–May 20: 6 to 9 p.m.
  • May 27–June 10: 7 to 10 p.m.
  • June 17–July 15: 7 to 11 p.m.
  • July 22–Aug. 5: 7 to 10 p.m.
  • Aug. 12–Oct. 28: 6 to 9 p.m.

No tickets necessary. Come and go or stay until close. Grab a friend, get some grub and groove into the weekend.
