May is usually a great month everywhere but it’s particularly good for music lovers in Decatur. And all the following events are free!
Every Saturday afternoon in May (and through June 8) it’s Sidewalk Saturdays from 3 to 6 PM. Over 20 acts, ranging from artists to musicians, dancers and performers, have been booked to appear at various locations in downtown Decatur and in Harmony Park in Oakhurst. You won’t want to miss a single Saturday!Sidewalk Saturdays
You can grab a lunch to go at any of the nearby restaurants and enjoy the Blue Sky Concerts every Wednesday in May from Noon to 1:00 PM on the Square in Decatur. Or grab a dinner to go or pack a picnic dinner and enjoy the Concerts on the Square every Saturday night starting at 7:00 PM. The Decatur Business Association presents both series of these free concerts, along with the help of our local sponsors who provide free prizes that are raffled off during the shows.
