We're excited to welcome live music back to Smiley's!

As the weather turns colder, some shows are scheduled for INSIDE at later times of day. Others are still planned for outside, but may be moved inside in case of rain. Indoor shows require proof of vaccination.

PLEASE MAKE A CAREFUL NOTE OF TIME AND WHETHER SHOW IS INSIDE OR OUT, AND KEEP AN EYE OUT FOR AN EMAIL FOR CHANGE IF IT IS OUTSIDE.

Online Tickets are no longer available 1 hour before the show, and Eventbrite will show that it is "Sold Out", but there are usually still tickets at the door.

Thank you for your understanding!
