VERO BEACH —  April 30 marks the long-awaited return of the Downtown Friday street parties in Vero Beach.

Downtown Friday is a party with bands, demonstrations during band breaks, street vendors, and food and drink vendors.

The band April 30 will be The RetroRockers, playing old time rock and roll, with an emphasis on classic rock and British Invasion bands.

Main Street Vero Beach, the non-profit that presents Downtown Friday, is promising that the event will comply with all CDC recommendations regarding masks and social distancing.

The party will be along 14th Ave. in downtown Vero Beach from 6-9 p.m. In addition to the live music, there will be vendors selling food, drinks, and more.

The charity of the Month is Do You Give A Ruck?, a Vero Beach-based veterans support group that also works to feed the homeless.

The event is free to attend and is family and dog-friendly. While attending, do some shopping to support the downtown businesses.

For more information, call (772) 643-6782 or visit, where you can also find information on becoming a vendor.
