Torrington, WY (by Cindy Sheeley) June 6th, 2024 — The Goshen County Courthouse’s lawn and surrounding streets were filled with members of the community Wednesday night, as they gathered for the first Summer Concert Series for 2024.

During the event, attendees enjoyed country music by Jaden Schumacher and the Jessica Loobey Band, family fun, food trucks, and a beer garden.

The Summer Concert Series is presented by Goshen Main Street. These annual summer concerts are free to the public and are a wonderful way to bring the community together downtown.

The next concerts will be on June 12th, 19th, and 26th from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the block of East A and East 21st Ave. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own chairs.

Other events coming up in June includes the “Chalk the Walk Contest” and “80’s Night.” On “80’s Night,” June 19th, concerts attendees are encouraged to dress according to the 80s theme.

The “Chalk the Walk Contest” is open to all artists and is divided into three age categories. During the event, artists can find a designated “canvas area,” marked by “chalk designs welcome here” signs, on Main Street and its adjacent side streets. The area must be at least one sidewalk square and can be up to three squares.

Chalk will be provided if needed, and may be picked up at Goshen County Library, Cowboy Clinic, Bloedorn Lumber Co., Go Goshen, or the Edward Jones-Ryan Yung office.

Each week there is a designated theme. The theme for the week of June 12th is summertime, June 19th is favorite character or characters, and June 26th is celebrating community. Artwork must be family-friendly, avoid political statements, and not advertise alcohol or tobacco.

Artwork must be submitted each Tuesday by 4 p.m. by posting to Facebook and tagging #gogoshen or emailing [email protected]. You can register online at gogoshen.com.

The Summer Concert Series events are possible thanks to the amazing local sponsors.
