Announcing our Banko Beer Garden First Friday Lineup!

With the May edition of #LVUFirstFriday, we ushered in a new era – the Banko Beverage Co. Beer Garden Era. During the warm weather months, you will now have the chance to come to the South Bethlehem Greenway (Mechanic St. between Webster and Adams) during First Friday, where you can enjoy and appreciate a selection of beers, yard games, and music presented by our friends at Banko, alongside LVU and SouthSide Arts District.

And, in case you’re wondering who you’ll feast your ears upon this summer (and into the fall), we have an answer!

We have lined up a total of five – count ‘em – five full bands who are ready to rock the Greenway on each of the next five First Fridays. Each of these gigs will begin at 5 p.m., making your happy hour (or two) a little extra happy.
