Music Friday

Each third Friday of the month, the City of Lancaster is host of Music Fridays. Performances abound throughout Downtown as retailers, restaurants, and attractions host musicians and extend their hours and host live music. Each month brings new entertainment!  The Mayor’s Office of Special Events, Music for Everyone (MFE) and Series 42 are hosting a special concert series for 2014 Music Fridays.  During the fall/winter months concerts will be held indoors, during the spring/summer months, concerts will be held in Binns Park.
