Downtown Rising events every Saturday in Plattsburgh

July 23, 2017 GMT

PLATTSBURGH, N.Y. -

Downtown Rising is an event held every Saturday from June through August that brings live music, arts, and local produce all into one space. Multiple businesses set up tents selling local vegetables, meats, dairy, and jewelry at the Strand Theater lawn from 9am to 2pm. Every week also features a local band.

“One of the themes of downtown rising is to bring people downtown to hang out with friends and family and meet new people, and not only come here and experience this but to venture beyond,” said Downtown Rising organizer, Ryan Casey.

Organizers say they hope the event will also get people to check out other local businesses and activities - like the farmer’s market on Durkee Street.
