Sherman’s Hot Summer Nights concert series is a music and family-friendly festival. Hosted by Sherman’s Tourism and Main Street program, it offers free, family-friendly concerts on Thursday nights starting at 7:00PM at Lucy Kidd-Key Park.

Now in its 30th year of production, the tradition has been kept alive by the town's Mayor David Plyer who has a passion for classic rock, Sherman’s City Council, and funded through grants, sponsorships, and city hotel tax fund. The mix of talent is designed to be multi-generational with different local talent opening each event. Food trucks and vendors are at every concert selling a mix of carnival food and regional favorites. 

Bring your lawn chairs, pack a cooler, or just show up and enjoy an evening on the grass. Learn more at
