Friday Night Live is our free, outdoor summer concert series that takes place in downtown Madisonville. 2020 is going to be a year of BIG artists, an expanded Kidz Zone and brand new vendors! We can't wait for you to see what we have in store for this year! 

That's right, every single event is completely free.

All City of Madisonville events are open to the public and free of charge to anyone in attendance. 

Events welcome vendors to set up to raise money for non-profit organizations, school clubs, and teams, churches, etc. Vendors can be food-related or sell crafts and retail items. Vendor applications can be acquired by emailing
