Downtown Shutdown Live is a community block party bringing music, art and much more to the streets of downtown Westerly. Performance groups from both Westerly and Stonington High Schools will pave the way for games, pop-up Cafés, Oktoberfest celebrations, sidewalk sales with specialty vendors, open-air alcoholic beverages, artists and other attractions.
Participating vendors and downtown businesses will donate 10% of their revenue during the event to the Bricks & Murals Scholarship Fund and the Fund for the Preservation of the Downtown Murals. These funds go directly into promoting and preserving the local community, both through its children and rich history of fine arts.
Entry to Downtown Shutdown Live is free, though there will be food, beverages and specialty items for sale. Musical festivities will be headlined at 8:00 pm by Marc Douglas Berardo.
