It’s concert season in Sugar Hill! Sugar Hill Live on Stage is back at The Bowl for its 8th concert season and they’re announcing a concert that’s guaranteed to get you on your feet and dancing. On June 10, coming back to The Bowl for the first time since 2016, the eclectic rock and country group known for crisscrossing musical boundaries: The Mavericks: En Español World Tour. Debuting the band’s first-ever all Spanish album, the songs are as diverse as Latin America itself, and as cohesive as the ideal of the American melting pot.
Sugar Hill has earned a reputation for bringing a variety of musical genres that appeal to every audience. It all started in 2014 when The Bowl welcomed Haley & Alexis, Andy Velo and The Bacon Brothers for the city’s first-ever Bowl concert. Except for having to take a break during the pandemic in 2020, the venue has continuously hosted more than 50 performers in the past seven years. For most concerts, doors will open at 7 p.m., the opener will perform at 8 p.m., and the headline act will perform live on stage at 9 p.m. Spend the day in Sugar Hill before unleashing your best singing voice and dance moves at The Bowl.
Are you having a family day out? Bring the kids earlier in the day so they can enjoy Splash Park. The splash pad is located on the Dawn P. Gober Plaza, just above The Bowl with tables, umbrellas, and plenty of turf to spread out a picnic blanket. While you dry off, grab an ice cream cone from Scoops and hang around downtown before the concert begins. Splash Park will close at 2 p.m. for soundcheck, so be sure to get here before then to soak in the sun!
THE SHINE DISTRICT
Night out with friends? Take advantage of the SHINE District. Purchase an alcoholic beverage from Cantina Loca, Central City Tavern, Indio Brewing, or the Sugar Hill Distillery and ask for a SHINE to-go cup to take your drink anywhere within the SHINE District. You’ll be able to enjoy your food and drinks on the Promenade and West Broad Street without having to worry about finishing your drinks before you get to The Bowl.
Going on a date? Check out the latest exhibits at the Sugar Hill Art Gallery and History Museum. The exhibits at the History Museum include photographs, documents, and memorabilia that highlight the community’s churches, schools, gold mining and moonshining history. While the Art Gallery casts a spotlight on an eclectic mix of changeable featured works and traveling exhibitions from artists. Pack a picnic before you leave the house and spread your blanket out on the Plaza before stepping down into The Bowl for a night filled with The Mavericks’ rich musical paella.
Want a day to yourself? Before heading to The Bowl in Downtown Sugar Hill, stop by the Sugar Hill Golf Club to play a round. Located on Suwanee Dam Road, the golf club is one of the most beautiful and artfully laid out courses in the foothills of the North Georgia Mountains with a driving range and practice green.
