Friday Night Live (FNL)

Friday Night Live outdoor music event takes place every summer Friday night from June 3, 2022 to September 2, 2022 (except July 1, 2022, when some stages will have indoor stages) from 6:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. in downtown Waukesha. Thousands of people come to our beautiful downtown to enjoy the weather, dining, shopping, and a wide variety of live music as we close down the streets for our weekly summer music festival. Please note that, for safety reasons, NO cars will be allowed in the FNL footprint between 5:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. Any cars parked in the footprint after 5:00 p.m. WILL BE TOWED, AT OWNER’S EXPENSE! Please like and follow the Friday Night Live Facebook page and watch some of the videos posted there. If you like block parties, you won’t want to miss this one!

Special thanks to our sponsors!
