Heralding the end to a successful summer season and celebrating fall, Great American Downtown will host a Fall Music Festival Sept. 24 and 25 to kick off the Eat Local Fall Food Festival Sept. 24 through

Oct. 2.

Great American Downtown Director Paul Shea is putting the event together along with the city of Nashua and Riverwalk Cafe and Music Bar.

“It’s going to be a great set of shows. The caliber of music we have got is that of what folks have come to expect at Riverwalk – it’s great music, and a great variety too,” Shea said in a Thursday phone interview.

Saturday, Sept. 24, will feature musicians from New Hampshire, and Sunday, Sept. 25, will include groups from across New England, he said.

“This will be part of the Eat Local Fall Food Festival, which includes the Farmer’s Dinner, music, local chefs committed to local ingredients, and on Oct. 2, we will also be having a harvest celebration,” he said. “I’m pretty excited about it.”

The free outdoor music festival will be held at Le Parc de Notre Renaissance Francaise, along the Nashua River, on Water Street in Downtown Nashua. The Saturday show runs from noon-5 p.m., and the Sunday festival is set from 10 a.m.-6 p.m.

“Both days will feature a variety of food and arts vendors, and the Sunday performances will coincide with the ever-improving Nashua Farmers

Market,” Shea said in a Great American Downtown press statement on the event.

The Nashua Farmers Market continues to make changes and expand its offerings through the late-summer season. The Sept. 4 market introduced wine tasting for the first time with apple raisin wine from the New Boston-based Loyal Dog Winery. Shea said Nashua’s own Millyard Brewery plans to join future farmers markets.

The market also debuted a new midweek market on Sept. 7, which will be held from 4-7 p.m. Wednesdays through the fall. Shea said he expects to see the midweek market through September, and depending on turnout, through October, as well.
