Get ready to dance in the streets for the third annual Hailey Night of Music on Monday, July 19, from 5-10 p.m. The music event is part of the Hailey Month of Art, presented by the Hailey Arts Commission and the Hailey Chamber of Commerce in association with Figgleaf Productions.
"It's an opportunity for everyone to come out and shake a tail feather on Main Street," said Mark Johnstone, chair of the Hailey Arts Commission.
Main Street businesses and eateries from the Wicked Spud to di Vine wine bar will have live music performed by valley bands and musicians, including FourStroke Bus, Kim Stocking Band, No Cheap Horses, Slow Children Playing, Finn Riggins and Hat Trick.
"Monday is typically the slowest day of the week for restaurants and bars, and this is an opportunity for the arts to pump up their activity," Johnstone said. "It's very cool and everyone is looking forward to it."
The Month of Art in Hailey will end this year with the Northern Rockies Folk Festival, which will take place in Hop Porter Park on Friday, Aug. 6, and Saturday, Aug. 7.
"The valley is really becoming known for music this summer," Johnstone said. "Over 12 bands will play for the Night of Music and they are all local musicians, and they all play different music—it's the full gamut."
The midsummer night of fun, camaraderie and dance is for people of all ages, who can stroll through downtown Hailey and listen to some of the many fine musicians from the Wood River Valley.
