The Chamber’s Wednesday concerts are a tradition, and an evening that our community looks forward to every summer. In 2020, things will look a bit different, but hopefully just as much fun!
The Chamber has partnered with the Town of Basalt and our summer concert series production partner The Arts Campus At Willits (TACAW) to bring you Wednesday Night Live – a series of smaller, spread out street performances (buskers), celebrating all that makes Basalt and the mid-valley special. The street performers will range from musicians to magicians, jugglers and comedians — all disbursed through Basalt’s two main business districts (Historic Downtown and Willits) from 5:30-8:30 p.m.
“People can enjoy the entertainment while they’re out shopping and dining,” said Ryan Honey, TACAW’s executive director. Read the article in the Aspen Daily News.

Food & Beverage
We highly encourage you to support a local restaurant, as this is the perfect chance to dine-in, dine al fresco, or get dinner to go and picnic in the park, while safely physical distancing.
As this will be a popular community event, parking may be limited. Please be mindful of where you park. It is highly recommended that you take advantage of walking, biking (including using WE-cycle), using public transit (RFTA) as well as area Park & Ride lots for a more positive experience.
