Gem City Nights Return to Laramie Farmers Market
The Downtown Laramie Farmers Market is already a great Friday activity, and it’s about to get even better. Starting next Friday, Aug. 4, music and art are going to take center stage in the Depot Lot.
The Gem City Nights art and music series is back for its third year, and will bring a mix of music, art-making, and art sales from local artists to Laramie’s Farmers Market the entire month of August through Sept. 1. The free live music will be from 10 regional acts. There will also be five drop-in art-making workshops.
The Laramie Plains Civic Center’s (LPCC) Gryphon Theatre and Laramie Main Street Alliance present the series.
Each Gem City Night will feature an all-ages art workshop from 3 -7 p.m. and two musical acts from 6-9 p.m. at the north side of Depot Park.
“This collaboration between nonprofits is our way of giving the community a unique opportunity to connect,” LPCC Executive Director Jessica Brauer said in the press release. “A summer night at the Laramie Farmers Market is the perfect place to gather in appreciation for the arts.”
“We love collaborating and supporting artists, especially through events that bring the community together downtown," Laramie Main Street Alliance Communications Director Jennifer Power said
This year’s event lineup includes the following:
August 4: Rob Ickes and Trey Hensley & Ansel And the Brain Tattoos
August 11: SGRNY & Crooked Rugs
August 18: Taylor Shae Band & Jen Korte and the Loss
August 25: Pleasure People & Gasoline Lollipops
September 1: De Gringos Y Gremmies & Banshee Tree
Starting next week, stay a little longer at the Farmers Market to create or purchase a masterpiece, and listen to some good local jams.
Gem City Nights is presented by Blue Federal Credit Union and supported by the Wyoming Arts Council and local sponsors.
