SALEM (WSLS10)– Salem’s hometown brewery is taking the party Downtown this weekend, as Parkway Brewing Co. is hosting a huge party in Salem Friday night. It’s part of the continued effort to get more people into the downtown area of Salem.
The idea fits with feedback the City of Salem received earlier this year, through a public survey. One of the questions in the survey asked what changes people would like to see Downtown– and one of the top responses was more live music, something that will be offered at Friday night’s event.
While there are other major events in Salem, like Salem After Five, Star BQ and Olde Salem Days– the Parkway Downtown event is bringing a different vibe to the area.
There will be music by the Judy Chops, food from Long Fin Grill and of course, beer from Parkway Brewing.
Event organizers hope to bring out a big crowd, including families, students from Roanoke College and visitors from all over the region.
The event kicks off Friday, September 23 at 5:30 p.m. It’s free to attend.
