Beginning Friday, George, Streetfest on Main will expand onto Tabernacle Street between the roundabout and 100 East, and the Zion Brewing Company Jazz Garden will expand to fill the full courtyard at Ancestor Square.

Friday night’s concert will feature Sego, Golden Sun and Morning Pretty.

Estimated attendance in June was 2,500, and event organizers have been working to expand the event to accommodate all who wish to attend.

“We are thrilled at the community’s reception and support of this event,” Amy Thorpe, Jazz Garden manager, said.

Farmers market vendors who were originally located in the courtyard will now join the street market on Main and Tabernacle Streets offering room for bistro tables, chairs, new food options and more serving areas in the Jazz Garden.

    If someone is wondering, these band are rock bands, and I would say fairly heavy. Probably more fitting to teens and rockers than families.
