Admission is free to the public, and is very family friendly. The series runs from late April through early December.

The Chattanooga Market Plaza Parties, their brand-new Thursday Market & Music Series, are held at the world-class Miller Plaza and run May-October. Performers will enjoy a performance arena with professional sound, private dressing rooms and excellent sound & lighting.

Palo Duro Presents is now accepting submissions from professional musicians & performing artists who will be routing through the region and who are interested in performing at this unique venue. All genres/styles are eligible for consideration, but lyrics and presentation style must be family-friendly.

Palu Duro recommends that high-energy bands strongly consider Thursday, as the venue is custom-designed for live music and hosts other music series throughout the year. Between the two markets & music series, they anticipate that over 120 artists will be booked in 2010.
