'Downtown Live' started out as a lunch event branded as 'Brown Bag Lunch' in 2005 but was renamed 'Downtown Live' in 2012 when it became a Friday night event.
The concert is free to attend and is an all-ages event. Food will be available from area food trucks and beer and wine will be available for purchase, but no outside alcoholic beverages are permitted. Downtown Longview Main Street Coordinator Nickolas Mayfield says,
We want to thank all the bands, music fans, volunteers, and sponsors who have made this a great concert series for the past ten years. We look forward to continue making this an event the community enjoys and can be proud to support."
