Thursday nights in Downtown Denton

Published on: Mon, May 02, 2011

Summer Thursday nights fill downtown Denton with music during the Denton Main Street Association’s Twilight Tunes concert series.  Join the  FREE fun every Thursday evening from May through June.  Bring your friends and family, get a meal-to-go from one of the many downtown eateries, bring blankets and chairs, and enjoy an evening of great live music as the sun sets over downtown Denton.

The 2011 series offers an eclectic assortment of music for all listeners.  Thursday Twilight Tunes is the perfect way to kick off the weekend a little early and listen to some of the best local bands in the Denton area.  There is even a bouncehouse for the kids.  Concerts begin at 6:30 and end around 8 pm on the Denton County Courthouse-on-the-Square lawn, 110 W. Hickory Street.bonnie_and_nick_norris_with_caption_w640
