Concerts on the Common

The Townsend Military Band performs at Summer Band Concerts every Thursday evening, (weather permitting) on the Town Common. Band Concerts are free and open to the public. Bring a lawn chair (and bug spray), socialize with your friends and neighbors, and enjoy some great music! Summer Band Concerts are one of the things that make Townsend special!

At the conclusion of the Memorial Day Parade and Services, The Townsend Military Band performs a 1 hour concert on the Common.

The series of ten Thursday Band Concerts begin with four in June and continues through July and through at least August 16th, weather permitting. The music starts at 7:30 and ends at 9:30, with a brief intermission.

Each week a different, local non-profit organization hosts a Lawn Parties in conjunction with the Band Concert. Food, beverages, and other items are available for purchase and there are opportunities for concertgoers to test their skill or luck at various games set up on the Common.
