Cypress Mini Plaza
Walnut Creek Downtown (WCD) is happy to bring back Downtown Stages beginning May 22nd, 2022, through October 31, 2022. The program consists of three outdoor locations (stages) dispersed throughout the downtown whereby local musicians, dancers, poets, artists, and other forms of artists may showcase their talent in the heart of Walnut Creek.
The Downtown Stages locations are as follows:
- Stage 1 Cypress Street Mini Plaza-near 1399 N. Main Street
- Stage 2 Water Light Public Plaza-1501 Locust Street
- Stage 3 Plaza Escuela- near 1192 Locust Street
This is an opportunity for artists to showcase their talent in a free space; performers may collect tips. Additionally, WCD will promote the Downtown Stages and performers on its social media platforms-both Facebook and Instagram-as well as weekly e-blasts. WCD will be scheduling special activations throughout the Downtown Stages season.
We kick off the downtown stages in collaboration with the Lesher Center for the Arts, at the Farmers Market/Water Light Plaza Series. Performances will include Amber Cross on May 22nd, Meaghan Maples on June 5th and Cabanijazz on June 12th.
We are excited to have these and other local collaborative performances throughout the 2022 Downtown Stages season. We encourage local artists to register to perform or contact our office so that we can support and promote their efforts.
