Because Free Fridays happens during the summer months, always remember to bring water with you to the show so you can stay hydrated and fully enjoy the concert.

Free Fridays

Stuck in Gainesville for the summer but still don't want to blow a lot of cash on concerts? Go downtown to enjoy Free Fridays each week. Free Fridays is a concert series sponsored by the City of Gainesville from May through October.

The concert series takes place in the Bo Diddley Community Plaza and is open to spectators of all ages. Bands range from Gainesville's own psychedelic rock band Morningbell, to Jacare Brazil,a Brazilian and African folk music and dance troupe.

The show is completely free, so make a money-saving night out of the event and pack a picnic and a blanket and head downtown early to get a good spot.
