Sundown Brings Activity to Oyster Bay this Spring and Summer

Every Tuesday and Thursday night Oyster Bay will be abuzz during the spring and summer months.

Live performances and events will make up the Oyster Bay Sundown Series. These weekly happenings will be every Thursday night from 6pm to 8pm.

“Programming these live events will entice people to visit downtown, which is our goal,” said Diane Meltzer, the Oyster Bay Main Street Association’s Promotion Chair.

The Acts
Throughout the summer, the series will shift from the downtown to a variety of venues in and around Oyster Bay, highlighting the unique historical and cultural attractions in the area. Concertgoers are welcome to bring a blanket and a picnic to enjoy these live concerts in an enjoyable setting each week.
