The Town of Boone will kick off the 30th season of its Summer Concerts at the Jones House. This popular annual concert series features a diverse lineup of local and regional acts representing various musical genres such as bluegrass, jazz, folk, old time, songwriters, Celtic, and more. The concerts are free and open to the public, offering an enjoyable experience for music enthusiasts of all ages.
Concerts take place at the historic Jones House Cultural Center every Friday from June through August, starting at 5:30 p.m. Regardless of the weather conditions, the concerts are held as scheduled. Downtown Boone offers free parking after 5 p.m., making it convenient for attendees to park their vehicles.
“We're looking forward to continuing this three-decade long tradition of Summer Concerts at the Jones House in downtown Boone,” says Cultural Resources Coordinator Brandon Holder. “We invite everyone to join us on the lawn and enjoy a great lineup of talented musicians. It's a fantastic way to celebrate music, connect with the community, and make lasting memories.”
Guests are encouraged to bring their own chairs or blankets to relax on the Jones House lawn while listening to the music. Individuals who are of legal drinking age are allowed to bring their own alcoholic beverages onto the Jones House property, but it's important to note that open containers are not permitted beyond the property boundaries. Additionally, friendly pets are welcome at the concerts but must be kept on a leash.
The 2023 Summer Concerts at the Jones House are made possible by the generous support of several sponsors, including the Downtown Boone Development Association, Mast General Store, Burton Moomaw Acupuncture, M-Prints, Melanie's, and Stick Boy Bread Co.
