Local artists representing a wide range of genres are set to return to the McKelligon Canyon Amphitheater stage as part of the annual Cool Canyon Nights. The weekly concert series takes place every Thursday at 6 p.m. and is free to all attendees.

Prime 80s Rock kicked off Cool Canyon Nights on May 11, while Brown Betty is scheduled to conclude the series on July 27. The lineup showcases artists from various genres, such as the accordion-infused folk of Frontera Bugalu and the soulful harmonies of El Paso Band.

The event also features food trucks, craft vendors and giveaways that range from gift cards to tickets to the El Paso Downtown Street Festival.
