Downtown Tallahassee Events

April 2015

On the first Friday of each month thousands of visitors attend the First Friday Gallery Hop at Railroad Square from 6pm to 9pm. Most of the shops and studios in Railroad Square are open for this lively event. At Railroad Square, you can visit more galleries and art studios in a single location than anywhere else in the city. Live music is played at several locations throughout the Park.

Some of the galleries offer refreshments and hors d’oeuvres. Larger galleries may feature exhibits from a variety of artists while smaller ones display their own new works. The belly dance studio may put on a show and a drumming circle enlivens the evening. Come and join us for one of the best regularly occurring forms of entertainment in the whole city!

Check out First Friday on...

Open from 9am until 2pm every Saturday from March through November, the Downtown Marketplace features fresh homegrown produce and organic items. Fresh bread and eggs are available. Look for fresh cut flowers and native plants. These are our local farmers offering Mother Nature's best. Most of our farmers welcome WIC checks.

In this tranquil setting, celebrated local musicians play their music on stage, authors and poets present readings of their latest books, and regional artists show their fine arts and crafts. Special events bring hands-on art activities for children or sneak previews of upcoming cultural events.

Look forward to a great season continuing all the special events you'd expect and some new features to spice things up a notch.

STEEP CANYON RANGERS & DELLA MAE

Graham Sharp (banjo, harmony vocals) met future bandmates Woody Platt (guitar, lead vocals) and Charles R. Humphrey III (bass, harmony vocals) in 1999, while all three were attending the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill. Drawn together by their love of acoustic music, they began playing impromptu jam sessions. The main impetus to “go bluegrass” was the input of mandolin player Mike Guggino, an old friend of Platt’s. He owned a cabin in the mountains near the school, and the quartet used that as its rehearsal space. What has emerged is a real collaboration of musicians—creating music that they are passionate about, and blending it with humor to form a sophisticated show. Recent appearances include Austin City Limits, the Late Show...

The Avett Brothers come to Cascades Park on Friday night April 10th. This concert kicks off the brand new Word of South Festival taking place April 11-13. The Avett Brothers combine bluegrass, country, punk, pop melodies, folk, rock and roll, indie rock, honky tonk, and ragtime to produce a novel sound described by the San Francisco Chronicle as having the "heavy sadness of Townes Van Zandt, the light pop concision of Buddy Holly, the tuneful jangle of the Beatles, the raw energy of the Ramones."
