Waukesha’s Friday Night Live

Jun 9, 2023 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm


Waukesha’s Friday Night Live event is a family favorite of the original Lake Country Family Fun family.  The streets are shut down and the kids can just be kids and sing and dance through the streets!  The 2022 Waukesha Friday Night Live series is being hosted on 9 stages in downtown Waukesha that are sponsored by various businesses.  The event starts at 6:30 pm and runs through 9:00 pm each Friday night. Gather your family and friend and come on down and relax, grab a bite to eat, listen to some music and what downtown Waukesha has to offer.

The Friday Night Live outdoor music event takes place every summer Friday night from June 2, 2023 to September 1, 2023 (with July 7, 2023 being an INDOOR ONLY FNL) from 6:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. in downtown Waukesha. Thousands of people come to the beautiful Waukesha downtown to enjoy the weather, dining, shopping, and a wide variety of live music as they close down the streets for the weekly summer music festival. Please note that, for safety reasons, NO cars will be allowed in the FNL footprint between 5:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. Any cars parked in the footprint after 5:00 p.m. WILL BE TOWED, AT OWNER’S EXPENSE!  If you like block parties, you won’t want to miss this one!


***If it is raining, there will not be outdoor Friday Night Live, but many stages will move music indoors.***

In 2023, the events will start at June 2 and go through September 1. Please note that the July 7 event will be indoors.
