Florence After 5

Due to the state’s recommendation to limit mass gatherings to 250 attendees or less, Florence After 5 events have been suspended until further notice. Thank you for your patience and support while we work on plans to safely reopen festivals and events in Downtown Florence.

Florence After 5 is Downtown’s favorite award-winning block party. Held the final Friday of each month from April to October, the Florence Downtown Development Corp. hosts a FREE concert in the 100 block of S. Dargan Street between Evans and Cheves Streets in Historic Downtown Florence. In 2020, Florence After Five was awarded "Best Community Festival," "Best Place to Dance," "Best Outdoor Event," "Best Local Concert," and "Best Place for Live Music."
