George Kilby Jr. and the Road Dogs will play in Driggs on July 4. 

Starting this Friday, June 25 with the 2nd annual Artisans at Mugler weekly art fair, the Downtown Driggs Association is thrilled to present a full line up of free art, music and theater events again this summer in downtown Driggs.

The newest series of live outdoor music concerts called Downtown Sounds begins on July 4th on the Driggs Plaza. Not to be missed “George Kilby Jr. and the Road Dogs”, a five-piece band, is led by NY based George Kilby Jr, who has a surprisingly powerful connection to zydeco, Delta blues, and all things Mardi Gras. He and the Road Dogs, several of whom hail from the Tetons, tour the world with high energy. Their international reputation for bringing the bon temps is known far and wide! The concert is followed by the annual July 4th City of Driggs Fireworks Display, starting at 10:15pm, launched from LeGrand Pierre Avenue (road closed between 5th and Booshway).

Included in the Driggs Summer Arts line-up are two more Downtown Sounds concerts by “Jack and Kia” (of Sneaky Pete fame) on July 25 and local favorite Latin jazz band, “Calle Mambo” on August 14, along with Shakespeare in the Parks performance of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” and the 10th Anniversary Driggs Plein Air Art Festival from July 25-31.

Alison Brush, Director of the Downtown Driggs Association is excited to bring more free community event programming to Driggs than ever before. “We’re doing things a bit differently this summer and hope that everyone can show up early at the Driggs Plaza because we’ll have picnic dinners for sale by Capt. Ron’s Smokehouse and Spoons Food truck. Wine and beer will also be for sale for the perfect way to spend the late afternoon and evening with friends and family in downtown Driggs.”
