Free Friday Night Music

Friday night’s performances are supported in part by a NYSCA’s Decentralization Program, administered locally by Finger Lakes Community Arts Grants (FLACAG,) the Auburn Business Improvement District (BID), the Auburn Public Theater (APT) and the City of Auburn. The collaboration has made it possible to present a wide range of local music on Friday evening and it’s all free! 

This year thanks to our partners, we can start TomatoFest early, on Friday evening, without worrying about the weather! Just like last year, we’ve brought together a wonderful range of music, reflecting the unbelievable diversity of the Finger Lakes Music Scene. And the diversity of that music scene will begin Friday evening at 7PM, rain or shine, warm or cold! Here’s a taste of what we have planned:

Auburn Public Theater Stage Right 

7:00 pm Lauren Patti

7:30 pm Sydney Irving

8:00 pm Jess Novak Band


Moros Table (Jazz)

7:00 pm Brad Beardsley & Shelly Major
8:00 pm Anne Adessa and Off The Cuff

10:00 pm Bad Water

7:00 pm Katie Cholette
8:00 pm  Corey Bruce

See you in the morning!

Plan on coming back on Saturday morning at 10AM to 8:30PM when TomatoFest takes over the streets, the Auburn Public Theater,  the Auburn Mobile Stage  and another stage on Exchange Street for some great music. And that’s just a taste! We’re putting music and family fun more places than it’s ever been put in Auburn.
