AUBURN, Ala.- The SummerNight Downtown Art Walk will be held Friday, June 7, from 6-10 p.m. in downtown Auburn. Make plans to come downtown for an art-filled evening of fun!

An artist marketplace, live music, children's activities and late-night shopping and dining are just some of the fun features SummerNight has to offer. In addition to on-site activities, the community is invited to participate in a guacamole culinary contest. All culinary entries should be brought to the Jan Dempsey Community Arts Center (222 E. Drake Ave.) on Friday, June 7, between 8-11 a.m. Winners will be announced at 7:15 p.m. on the SummerNight stage at Toomer’s Corner.

This year, SummerNight is excited to welcome the band Sail On. The Beach Boys tribute band is ready to bring good vibrations to Auburn while paying homage to one of the greatest bands in history.
