Musicians and comedians take the stage at the Meyer Theatre, the impressive 1,000-seat performing arts center, which was once a Fox Theater. Farmers' Markets occur on Wednesdays and Saturdays, and one of the largest street festivals, Artstreet is held in August. Foodie events like Taste On Broadway in August, offer a "taste" of local restaurants, served up with a side of entertainment. You'll find musicians and entertainers performing Friday nights on CityDeck located across the river from the Neville Public Museum. From the deck, you can watch boats busily navigate the waterway, making it a great place to have lunch on Wednesdays in Summer, when local restaurants serve their cuisine ala carte at Dine on the Deck. Art enthusiasts will enjoy Olde Main Street's Gallery Nights, where you can ride the trolley to tour the galleries and meet the artists. One of the largest local art galleries is The ARTgarage, located in a renovated cannery building. The city's KI Convention Center is just one block from CityDeck and the city's nightlife. Leicht Park is the scene every Thursday night in July and August, for free live rock, country and 80s music during Leicht at Nite concert series. Don't miss the city's amazing Independence Day celebration, Fire Over the Fox. Live music, downtown shopping specials, family entertainment and of course, fireworks are all included in the day of fun. Green Bay's Broadway Street is filled with boutique retail and coffee shops. Great little lunch places are scattered about, and dinner overlooking the Fox River is a favorite activity for many locals.
