Dancin’ in the Street


Since 2016, families, friends and neighbors have gathered in the closed-off street in front of City Hall to dance the warm summer night away! Attendees enjoy free lessons from local dance instructors, music fills the air, and all are invited to DANCE!

Due to popular demand, things are switching up in 2020! Instead of just one evening of Dancin’ in the Street, the city is planning THREE events! For three summer months, each event will focus on a specific cultural style of dance. Instructors will be there to show you the basics for an hour; then our guest musicians will heat up the night with two 45-minute sets:

June 26: Swing

The Hal McIntyre Orchestra

July 10: Hip hop

DJ K-Wil (TBD)

Aug. 14: Latin

Beantown Social Club

All events will be held on a Friday from 7–10 pm,
at Renaissance Park 
on Water Street, in Downtown Nashua.

We’ll share more details as they are announced!
