Tonight’s Downtown Getdown was supposed to be in unison with tomorrow’s FSU National Championship Celebration, but that has been postponed.
The good news is Downtown Getdown is still happening tonight!
TPD and many vendors are already on location, set up, and ready to go.
The United Way said they wanted to continue with the Downtown Getdown because a lot of preparation went into tonight’s festivities.
The United Way’s Downtown GetDown this Friday night at the Adam’s Street Commons in Tallahassee will go on as planned, although the Championship Celebration scheduled for this Saturday has been postponed.
Rob Wilson, FSU's Associated Athletic Director, has stated that part of the reason for the postponement was that some of the draft eligible players were not able to make it, and very much wanted to be a part of the celebration.
A new date for the celebration will be announced once plans are finalized.
News Release: Tallahassee Downtown
This Friday, January 17, will see the return of one of Tallahassee’s favorite traditions for a Special FSU Championship Night: the Downtown GetDown will return for a special celebration to honor our National Championship. Now in its sixteenth season, the Downtown GetDown series has become a preferred Friday night destination for our loyal FSU fans and visitors to our city alike. These events bring together the best local food vendors, our favorite local musicians, and activities for kids of all ages.
Plans are well underway for an exciting night. The GetDown will take place this Friday from 6PM until 10PM in the Adams Street Commons. We will kick off the GetDown with a performance by one of Tallahassee’s favorites, the Royce Lovett Band, on the main stage!
There will be a beer station for this special night, courtesy of Tri-Eagle Sales. After purchasing wristbands and tickets from the Budweiser trailer, be sure to stop over at the beer trailer and try Budweiser’s beer of the night.
Klown Kapers will be on site to entertain our youngest GetDown attendees with face painting, balloon art, a green screen photo back-drop, and more.
Our fire jugglers will return for special performances throughout the evening. You won’t want to miss the show!
There will be special appearances by some of your favorite FSU traditions including the FSU Cheerleaders!
