The Schenectady County Legislature proudly announces the Spin Doctors will headline Schenectady County SummerNight 2018. 

This free summer family-friendly block party, with support from our presenting sponsors Rivers Casino & Resort, Times Union, and Saratoga Eagle in partnership with B95.5, will be held on Friday July 13, from 5:00pm until 10:00pm in Downtown Schenectady (on State Street between Broadway and Barrett Street and on the Jay Street Pedestrian Mall) – right in the heart of the city’s revitalized and exciting downtown.

This year’s celebration will feature live musical performances, games, and great food.  The GE Main Stage on State Street will rock throughout the evening with the sounds of Schenectady County’s 2016 and 2017 Battle of the Bands winners Lucy and Bendt.  

Closing out the show will be Grammy Nominated Spin Doctors who will rock the crowd beginning at 8:30pm, closing with a special set for the grand finale Price Chopper & Market 32 fireworks that caps off the evening around 9:45pm. Additional musical performances by local musicians will occur on Jay Street and on the Via Entertainment Stage.

The ever popular sand sculpture sponsored by Sunmark FCU will again be created right before your eyes beginning at 10am.  And what’s a summer celebration without a food eating contest?  Villa Italia will be sponsoring the Fourth Annual “Schenectady County Celebrity” Cannoli Eating Contest.

Kid-friendly activities will occur in the MVP Health Care Kids Corner including activities with Schenectady YMCA, the Schenectady Boys & Girls Club, miSci, free face painting, and so much more!

Finally, a great summer party is not complete without great food, and Schenectady County SummerNight promises to deliver! Downtown restaurants and vendors will offer delicious food, drinks, and desserts for sale throughout the event. Downtown restaurants and shops are open for business, many bringing their operations outdoors so revelers will not miss a minute of Schenectady County SummerNight excitement.
