Downtown Summer Nights

Downtown Summer Nights (DSN), a summer concert series, was created in 2015 through a partnership between the Town of Decatur, Meigs County and the Meigs County-Decatur Chamber of Commerce. In its inaugural year, the series has done much more than provide the opportunity for people to experience the arts in a way previously not available. The concerts have proven to be beneficial to local business owners by driving traffic downtown, and to all citizens by providing a place to gather. The 2016 series consisted of 5 concert nights with 3-4 hours of music per night.
