Friday, May 5, 2023 - The 2023 Diamond Daze Downtown festival has scheduled several crowd-pleasing musical performances at three different stage locations.
The three stages include the Stage Park (on the corner of Choctaw and Oak Street), the Pocket Park (on the corner of Cherokee and Oak Street), and the GRDA Stage (Stanley Tubbs Memorial Library lawn).
"I am really excited about the entertainment line-up for this year's event. The performances scheduled offer a variety of artists, including a little bit of country, bluegrass, gospel, and more," Sallisaw Chamber Director Marty Green said.
Sing Sallisaw will kick off the festival's entertainment tonight, Friday, May 5 at 6 p.m. Sing Sallisaw is a singing competition where contestants compete against each other to advance to the next round.

Both rounds will be held at the Pocket Park, with the winner performing at 7 p.m. Saturday.
The Cherokee National Youth Choir performs at 11 a.m. Saturday on the GRDA stage. "I am really excited about this one. It brings something new that we’ve never experienced before, and I think it is going to be a great show," Green added.
The Pocket Park is the place to be from 3 to 4:30 on Saturday if you want to catch a performance by Nashville recording artist Brittany Morse & Friends.
