Please note: Due to the high likelihood of inclement weather, tomorrow’s Commons Off The Clock events have been cancelled. Commons Off The Clock will now kick-off on June 2nd from 4 - 7:30 p.m. featuring the band Abby Normal.

Downtown Des Moines is getting the biggest happy hour in the metro – Commons Off The Clock – bringing bands, brews, and bites to Cowles Commons on select Fridays this summer. This new event is a chance for Des Moines area residents to unwind, meet-up, and have fun as they leave work behind, and prepare for a weekend of enjoying all that the Des Moines Metro has to offer.

Inspired by the classic 'Seniom Sed,' which brought people together to launch the weekend in the 1980's and 90's, Commons Off The Clock will put its own twist on happy hour. The event will feature Des Moines' favorite local food trucks, beers, and live music from the best bands in the region – AND admission is FREE. Revelers just need to bring a few bucks to enjoy great food and drinks.
