Join us July 27 for a Summer in the City Downtown Dance Party


Join us Saturday, July 27 from 8-10 p.m., and watch as downtown Gainesville is transformed into a party atmosphere for an evening of non-stop dancing in front of the Hippodrome Theatre. Summer in the City is a free, family-friendly block party with DJ-spun music provided by Genius Entertainment. Revelers can enjoy refreshing snacks and non-alcoholic beverages for sale at food trucks onsite, and also visit downtown bars and restaurants, which will be serving full food and drink menus. The blocks of Southeast Second Place and Southwest First Street will be closed to traffic from 6-11 p.m. for this extravaganza.

Hosted by the City of Gainesville and sponsored by Gainesville Health and Fitness, Summer in the City is a special opportunity for the entire community to celebrate Gainesville150! For more information about Gainsville150!, visit
