Growing every year, this 7th season of the event brings together a diverse musical offering, from pop to folk, from Americana to jazz – there is something for everyone at each concert. Presented by Visit Tallahassee, a division of Leon County, our partners, the City of Tallahassee, Vystar Credit Union, Proof Brewing Co., Metronet, Hotel Indigo and more!

The Sundown concert series will feature Two Foot Level on July 23, 2022.

The 2022 series features a mix of up-and-coming national headliners and incredible homegrown talent. This year’s headliners include: Tallahassee Nights Live, Florida Folk Heritage Award recipients The Lee Boys, Banditos, Lil Grizzly, New 76ers, Filthy Six and Revival.

In addition to live musical entertainment, there will be family activities and local food trucks, plus all of the amazing amenities Cascades Park has to offer, including miles of trails, the Discovery Playground and the Imagination Fountain. Participants are encouraged to bring their own food and beverages. Delicious food trucks will also be on site with food available for purchase. Events are open to all ages; no tickets or pre-registration required. There is ample parking at and around Cascades Park; parking details available HERE.

Elizabeth Emmanuel, CEO of Tallahassee Downtown, said, “In addition to the incredible talent that takes the stage at these events, what we love to see is our community filling the park with their friends and family. A relaxed atmosphere where you can bring your most elaborate picnic blanket or oyster shell – socialize with old and new friends and enjoy different types of music. It showcases the fun culinary and creative talent we have in Tallahassee.

The past two years have been filled with uncertainty, but these events have persisted. It’s so important to our creative community, our sense of belonging and our economic development.

Downtown businesses benefit from these concerts – and our community benefits from an array of dining and dining options – grab a bottle of wine to bring to Poco Vino, stop at Proof for a beer and dinner , a cocktail in Charlie Park during sunsets, a picnic basket from the Edison – all of these positively impact the economic success of our downtown and due to the outpouring of community support, we are now seeing more businesses open in the area.

Thanks to our sponsors, Visit Tallahassee, a division of Leon County; City of Tallahassee; VyStar credit union; Evidence Brewing Co.; Grove Consulting; metronet; Hotel Indigo; TMobile and more!
