DAY News Release: Downtown Summer Nights Venue Change

The Final Downtown Summer Nights presented by Cashmere Valley Bank and the Downtown Association of Yakima (DAY) will take place Thursday, Aug. 17 at its normal time, but at a new location. The event will be held just around the corner at the new Rotary Pavilion Market Place at 15 West Yakima Ave.  The Aphrodisi-Yaks and Polyrythmics will perform from 6-9. DAY Executive Director Curt Wilson said “the reason for the move was to ensure that the public can safely attend our final Downtown Summer Night event of the summer during this heat wave. We are thankful for MultiCare Memorials flexibility and willingness to provide early access to their parking lot, amongst other things.” We encourage the community to come out and enjoy our last Downtown Summer Nights event at the Rotary Pavilion. Attendees are encouraged to hydrate well all day and during the event.

In addition to the venue change, the Downtown Association is letting the community know that a production crew will be on site filming a specific group of people as they enjoy food, drink, music and community interaction. Individuals choosing to attend the event may appear in pictures and videos. Signs will be posted and an announcement will be made notifying the public that by entering the area and attending the event, they are acknowledging that they have been informed that they may be photographed and recorded. Any individual or group not wanting to be filmed, or have their photo published, should not attend the event.
