Free. Family friendly. Every Thursday night this summer in Downtown Decorah!
The 2023 Lawn Chair Night season kicks off at Courthouse Square on June 1 with Uptown Jazz! The night’s sponsor is Aase Haugen Senior Services.
Uptown Jazz is southeast Minnesota’s premier little big band. The band features six horns, a full rhythm section and two vocalists bringing you the most popular songs from many jazz eras. From the crooning sounds of Frank Sinatra and Michael Buble, to the swinging jazz styles of Ella Fitzgerald and Nancy Wilson, Uptown Jazz will keep you moving in your seat or on the dance floor.
Lawn Chair Night has been a program of Downtown Decorah Betterment for more than 25 years. It’s now made possible by DDBA in partnership with Visit Decorah Tourism and Impact Coffee, along with generous contributions from top sponsor AJ Realty and more than 10 supporting sponsors. This free, public event features both local and regional talent. Attendees are encouraged to bring a chair and their toe tappin’ shoes. In 2023, three performances will take place at the Courthouse and ten will be on Washington Street. For the Washington Street shows, attendees are encouraged to purchase a beverage at Impact Coffee, our event partner.
In the event of rain, the Courthouse events will be cancelled or moved to a different location and the Washington Street events will be moved inside Impact Coffee. Rain announcements will be made on Facebook’s Visit Decorah page and the Downtown Decorah Betterment page.
