Campbell is a town of culture and great artistry, and we see that on display every month with music and art displays on First Fridays and Second Saturdays. On those days, the sidewalks of Downtown Campbell come alive with local musicians, artists, and craftsmen putting their skills on display. These days are the perfect opportunity to support the arts in a tangible way.
Every month, the first weekend kicks off with free sidewalk concerts by up and coming local bands and longtime Campbell favorites. There are four bands or musicians scheduled each month, and they are spread throughout downtown, so you will have plenty of opportunities to enjoy live music. And while you are walking between band sites, be sure to stop in to local stores and see what kinds of goodies the local merchants have to offer. You might find a new favorite spot!
The musical stylings range from rock to country to jazz, and everything in between. Past musicians have shared the stage with the likes of Neil Young and played all over the world including Australia, Guatemala, and even the White House. The fun goes from 5:30 to 8:30. Are you a musician looking for a place to get out in front of a crowd and play? You can apply to be one of the featured bands or musicians here.
