The Friday Night Concerts are a weekly event at the City Plaza in downtown Chico. The evening concerts are free to the public and sponsored by the Downtown Chico Business Association. They have been an annual tradition in Chico for more than 30 years, although they were held in Children's Playground while the new City Plaza was being constructed.
The concerts are held every Friday night during the summer (May-September) 7:00-8:30pm. Local bands play a wide range of musical styles, with something to please everyone. They are a family-friendly event, and there are usually a few vendors selling food and other goods. It's a great idea for a date.
