Family-Friendly Monthly Concert Series



The 2021 Friday on the Green originally planned for Friday, September 10, 2021 has been canceled due to public health concerns.


FRIDAY ON THE GREEN is the once-monthly concert series presented the second Friday of April, May, June, September and October by Near Southside, Inc. and Historic Southside, Inc. The event is held at Magnolia Green, located on Lipscomb between Magnolia and Rosedale, and regularly attracts thousands of neighborhood families and visitors.  Friday on the Green features the region’s best live music, tasty food and drinks from Near Southside eateries, and the fun and relaxed atmosphere of a big neighborhood picnic. Groups of families and friends show up with blankets, chairs and pets to enjoy a lineup of four great local bands, children’s activities and an artisan market. Like ArtsGoggle, word about Friday on the Green has spread throughout the region, taking the event to a new level of popularity, but with the feel of a neighborhood party still intact.
