Downtown Tempe’s Park After Dark Series
July 24, 2021
Downtown Tempe’s Park After Dark Series will take place every Saturday through Sept. 11 starting at 7 p.m. at 6th Street Park.
Spending a year closer to home made it easier than ever to appreciate throwback entertainment like backyard games, the sweet pleasure of a frozen popsicle, or a refreshing icy cold brew. Even so, for many people, the pull to mix, mingle, and get back into the community is strong. Starting Saturday, June 19, the Downtown Tempe Authority is making it easy to enjoy the best of both worlds with the launch of Park After Dark, a Saturday event series that blends classic homestyle pleasures with music, food, and drinks a laid-back evening out the whole family can enjoy.
Taking place at 6th Street Park, the event is nestled under plenty of shade trees for a quick cool-down as the blazing day fades to dusk. Festive park lights set the mood for each fun-filled evening, with live entertainment rotating each week to reflect the vibrancy and diversity of Tempe. Pedal Haus Brewery will be on-site each week hosting a beer and wine garden with beverages for purchase, and several restaurants nearby offer takeout to enjoy in the park.
The first Park After Dark event this Saturday, June 19, will feature Juneteenth thematic programming with MC Rozotadi and live performances by DJ Panico, Prime Society, and spoken word by Sean Avery.
