Downtown Rome Saturdays returns for the final event in the series this Saturday, September 1 with a free concert on Broad Street featuring a Tom Petty and Allman Brothers tribute by The Unusual Suspects.

The concert will be held from 7 pm -10 pm and the stage will be located next to the Rome Area History Museum on 3rd Ave. Access to Broad Street will be blocked off to vehicle traffic in the 200 and 300 blocks from 4:00 pm until 11:00 pm. Outside coolers and drinks are not permitted in the event area. Downtown restaurants will offer armbands for purchase of alcoholic beverages in the event area.  Free parking will be available at 3rd Ave deck, 4th Ave deck and 6th Ave deck.

The free event series that runs the first Saturday of each month May through September is made possible thanks to the generous support of Rome’s downtown businesses and property owners. The community is encouraged to support downtown businesses by dining, shopping and utilizing services.
