FINALLY FRIDAYS

Finally Fridays are how Forest City kickstarts the weekend every first Friday of the summer! Finally Fridays provide a way for friends, co-workers and families to gather, unwind and network while enjoying live music, tasty food and beverages and a fun, casual atmosphere. Finally Fridays’ central location to historic Main Street allows you to access all of the restaurants, shops, boutiques and more that downtown Forest City has to offer. We encourage you to support local during this event!

We look forward to seeing you at POPS!

Cat5 burst on the scene in June of 2019 from a trio of top East Coast Bands. Less than a year later in March of 2020 they had to cancel almost 200 dates from their 2020 Calendar due to the pandemic shutdown of Covid-19 in March. The shutdown did not stop them from winning the CBMA Cammy Award for New Artist of the year in 2020.

See why they keep winning Cammys over and over again: Cat5 Mash-Up.
