The Loveland Downtown District is pleased to announce the One Sweet Summer event series is returning to The Foundry Plaza for 2021, running from May through September. Kicking off May 29, there will be a variety of activities and concerts happening that bring fun for everyone. All events in the series are free and open to the public, with free parking available throughout downtown and in The Foundry parking garage.
Along with family-friendly live music from talented regional bands, the Loveland Downtown District will host extended outdoor patio dining, fitness classes, kids days in partnership with City of Loveland Parks & Recreation, Loveland Public Library and MetroLux Dine-In Theatres, and two new all-day music festival events in July and September. The series will also feature local artists, food vendors, and downtown craft breweries.
“We’re very excited to move forward with these outdoor events and welcome the community back downtown again,” said Sean Hawkins, Executive Director of the Loveland Downtown District. “This is a great opportunity for people to enjoy live music and summer activities while supporting our local, independent businesses.”
Support for the One Sweet Summer event series comes from the generosity of annual investor partners, FNBO, Xfinity, and AIMS Community College. All events will operate with current COVID-19 restrictions in place at the time of the event, under an event variance approval by Larimer County. Attendees are encouraged to follow all posted guidelines and maintain 6 feet distancing between groups.
