Thomas Rhett

Bill Engvall

Rodney Carrington

& more!

Foreigner at the Fritz.

Dwight Yoakam at the Fritz.

TIm & Faith at the Ralph.

Keith Urban at the Ralph.

Little Big Town at the Ralph.

Not to shabby for upcoming Concerts/Entertainers for a small town on the prairie.

Not as big of a name/national brand, but Half Brothers Brewing and Brick and Barley are having Hairball perform for a free concert on 3rd street on May 5th.  

Add in Blues in the Red, Concerts in the Garden, Up North Ribfest, Alley Alive, and Greenway Takeover Festival, more bars downtown offering music and GF has quite a bit of entertainment/music options.  Entertainment options is one of the things I've always enjoyed and wanted to see more of in GF. Over the last few years this area has grown a bit more.

I've always thought GF could use more of this. 

Lots of small towns have popular street dances, and Grand Forks could put on a hell of one if they wanted to. Close down third from Demers to University. Rope it off. Allow free roaming in between the bars and drinking outside, invite a loved regional band like Hairball and say screw the noise ordinance, and party til 1am!

Throw up the christmas lights that cross the streets downtown that are currently up.

Packed street crowded downtown for a block or two.

The optics could be great.

So something along these lines?  https://www.basilicablockparty.org/

Town Square does some of that already, but it is nice to change it up a bit.

Half Brothers Brewery has FREE live music EVERY night. And it's family-friendly.

 

Yea, Half Brothers has been a great addition for the live music scene.

Town Square can be nice for the "family friendly." I like the idea of using the street and incorporating the bars. 

Event would have to be free though as buildings and bars would be blocked off to get into from the event.

GF did have some smaller bands outside rhombus guys blocking the street this summer which was cool. 

I'm guessing Downtown Development Association put it on.

IMO certain areas of 3rd should be pedestrian only. From the railroad tracks to Toasted Frog.

Well that picture brought back some memories! Got any interior pictures?

I think I was in there once or twice when I was 10 and that was about it, vaguely remember it.

The only time third street is busy enough to warrant it closing is Friday and Saturday nights.
