    Downtown Lake Charles

    For twenty-four years now, Downtown at Sundown has given Lake Charles a reason to celebrate the diverse culture and local businesses of downtown, and its 2022 season is fast approaching! The series is set for four consecutive Fridays from 6 to 9 p.m. beginning on May 13. The outdoor festival will take place in the 1000 block of Ryan Street in front of Historic City Hall and the Parish Courthouse. 

    The City of Lake Charles is proud to announce this year’s band line up to get residents and visitors excited about re-experiencing downtown Lake Charles. Downtown at Sundown will showcase the finest in local art, music, and food. 

    The series kicks off with Grammy winner for best zydeco album, Chubby Carrier and the Bayou Swamp Band, which will be sure to ignite the stage with traditional zydeco music infused with contemporary sounds and styles. The 33s rock the stage with the classics on May 20. The Charlie Wayne Band mixes up country music with some rock favorites on May 27 for Memorial Day weekend. On June 3, Robin and the Sugar Bees bring it home for the final weekend playing a little bit of everything.  

    “Events such as Downtown at Sundown help establish downtown Lake Charles as a thriving urban community that offers something exciting for its residents, businesses, and visitors,” said Mayor Nicholas Hunter. “Southwest Louisiana is blessed to have more than its fair share of talented musicians and artists, and we plan to highlight them at this year’s series.” 

    CITGO Petroleum, Stockwell Sievert Law Firm, Entergy, Lake Charles Toyota, Fuerst Carrier and Ogden, Erdace Companies, First Horizon Bank and Hertz Capital One Tower have made it possible for an estimated 2,500 attendees each week to gather and enjoy the free and family-friendly event. 

    Beverage sales will benefit the Literacy Council of SWLA. Lawn chairs are welcome; however, ice coolers and pets are prohibited. In case of rain, the concerts will take place inside the Lake Charles Civic Center.
