The next Third Thursday event is coming on the evening of May 18th to Downtown Benton. The City hosts this street festival throughout the warm months and invites the community to come shop, eat, play, and dance in the streets. There will be food trucks, vendors, kids zone fun and more. Come early to park and walk to the Main Street and Sevier Street sides of the Saline County Courthouse for all the fun.
Here’s the list of musical artists booked for this season’s Third Thursday events:
May brings the first ACMA artist of the season. The 2019 ACMA Young Artist of the year Bree Ogden. Her fiery style of music and stage performance will keep you on your feet all night long. No need for a lawn chair this night!
June brings Hillestad to the stage from Hot Springs. This gritty delta blues sound will have you remembering all those nights in the smoky bars. Janice Joplin in the house in June.
July is toasty so why not put a little Huckleberry Jam on it. ACMA nominated for group of the year their traditional country will keep you cool on this hot summer night.
August brings us The Brian Nahlen band down from North Little Rock. The eclectic mix of rock, funk and smooth ballads will have you looking for him all over town just to hear it again.
Have you ever heard a band and said I wish I had heard them before they were big time? Here is your shot because we close out the summer in September with Tyler Kinch. ACMA nominated for artist of the year in 2022 and the sky is the limit for him and his Band. Bring a friend and cellphone to show you were here.
