Wednesday Night Live

A safe alternative in 2020 & 2021

The Chamber’s Wednesday concerts are a tradition, and an evening that our community looks forward to every summer. In 2020 events had to look a bit different, but as a result, Wednesday Night Live was born. Since it was so much fun, it was brought back in summer 2021.

The Chamber partnered with the Town of Basalt and our summer concert series production partner The Arts Campus At Willits (TACAW) to present Wednesday Night Live – a series of free street performances, celebrating all that makes Basalt and the mid-valley special. The street performers ranged from musicians to magicians, jugglers and comedians — distributed throughout Basalt’s two main business districts (Historic Downtown and Willits) from 5-8 p.m.

In addition to the entertainment, retail stores, restaurants and bars were also involved, with special hours, sales and promotions. 

“People can enjoy the entertainment while they’re out shopping and dining,” said Ryan Honey, TACAW’s executive director. Read an article about the series in 2020 from the Aspen Daily News.

Food & Beverage

We highly encourage you to support a local restaurant, as this is the perfect chance to dine-in, dine al fresco, or get dinner to go and picnic in the park.


As this will be a popular community event, parking may be limited. Please be mindful of where you park. It is highly recommended that you take advantage of walking, biking (including using WE-cycle), using public transit (RFTA) as well as area Park & Ride lots for a more positive experience. 

Thank you to our partners

Wednesday Night Live would not be possible without the support of Town of Basalt, The Arts Campus At Willits (TACAW) and the Basalt Chamber of Commerce.
