Presented by Bud Light, the Fayetteville After Five season finale will have fun, music and food. Fayetteville After Five is a free summer concert series held in Festival Park every month from May to August. This season kept the crowds coming back with performances from headliners 120 Minutes, Bad Inc., Slippery When Wet and On the Border, with local bands opening each show. The August concert, which takes place on Friday the 10th from 5-10:30 p.m., is the perfect way to wind down the summer with families and friends. There will be food trucks on-site with tasty fare to enjoy along with the concert.
The concert will open with Quilted Sky followed by Heart Breaker, a Heart tribute band. Heart Breaker’s vocalists, Suzi Nelson and Joan Burton, will serenade the audience with the greatest hits of Heart and the greats of Led Zeppelin that inspired Heart.
The opening act, Quilted Sky, will perform classic rock sung by bandmates Stan Draughon and Ralph Justice. Festival Park lends itself to dancing on the promenade and sing-along, so come ready to enjoy the experience.
Along with great music, guests can enjoy the diverse offerings of Food Truck Friday. There will be something delectable for everyone, be it savory or sweet. Food trucks such as My Daddy’s Barbeque, Thai Box Zing, Kona Ice and Wingski’s will make an appearance at Festival Park, serving BBQ, authentic German food, shaved ice, doughnuts and more. Enjoy a pulled brisket sandwich from My Daddy’s BBQ, a Kat-n-Around bratwurst, or Chicken and Waffles from Wingski’s. Finish it off with a flavorful or nutritious shaved ice from Kona Ice.
