Nevada City’s annual Summer Nights celebrations kick off Wednesday and run through July 31, featuring free nightly events throughout downtown.

“Summer Nights is a Nevada City tradition — the whole town comes alive,” says Cathy Whittlesey, director of the Nevada City Chamber of Commerce. “It’s the must-attend event of the summer season — a real community party, showing off the best of NevadaCity.”

Summer Nights visitors can sit down for a meal at one of the city’s restaurants, unwind with some live music or just relax with a leisurely stroll around our stores and the top class craftsmen selling their wares on the street.

This summer’s live performances feature local bands like Achilles Wheel and Lorraine Gervais; favorite oldies with Then Again and Sergeant Funky; and don’t miss dancing the tango to Ivan Najera’s exhilarating Latin American infused set.

For the kids, there will be bouncy castles, face-painting and more to make sure that kids will have a great time at this family affair.

Nevada City will also be filled with arts and crafts booths featuring cool,one-of-a-kind gifts designed and produced by local artists and crafters as well as hand-picked out-of-town vendors. Special additions this year include a Broad Street Farmer’s Market with fresh, local produce and a different Classic Car Show every week. And don’t miss the exotic music and dance of Troupe Al Ama belly dancers!
