The Alive After 5 downtown concert series was started in 2003 by a group of downtown restaurant & property owners led by the Publisher of the Gazette. The anchoring hosts included Walkers, McCormick’s, Pug Mahons, The Rex, and Montana Brewing Co and began with just 5 summer concerts around downtown. Tiny’s Tavern added in as an anchoring host in 2004. Over the years, the idea grew from the initial 5 concerts a summer to, at its biggest 14 concerts, to its current state.
Most of the DBA signature events such as St. Patrick’s Day festivities, Strawberry Festival, Harvest Fest, Holiday parade, Christmas Stroll, First Friday efforts, and more, are not revenue generators for the DBA, but are coordinated in efforts to bring people to downtown boosting the vitality of the downtown businesses. AA5 not only brings people downtown it is also one of the few revenue generating events thrown by the DBA. The revenue generated by the AA5 series helps sustain the coordination and facilitation of the other DBA community-centric events throughout the year.
