Music In Mason

Music in Mason is back in 2023 with great music and fun for the community to enjoy! The City will host eight concerts on Mason’s Downtown Plaza on Friday evenings throughout the months of June and July. In addition to live music, the events will feature food, beverages, kids’ activities, local business displays and more!

The 2023 summer concerts will kick off on Friday, June 2 beginning at 6:00 p.m. with “Into the Mystic, a Tribute to Van Morrison” followed by “Brent James & The Vintage Youth” at 8:00 p.m. with the event concluding at 10:00 p.m. Friday nights in Mason is a great way to end the work week with a night of live music and entertainment.

Supporting Mason’s Small Business Community
The Mason small business community is an essential component to bringing the community together and building a sense of connection and community pride and a significant factor in the City’s recent ranking of 4th Best Place to Live for Families. While attending Music in Mason, community members are encouraged to explore all the unique businesses that call Mason home. Mason’s small business community features many unique specialty shops, retail and dining experiences.  There is something for all ages to enjoy!

Music in Mason is a FREE opportunity for local businesses to promote their establishment by being a vendor or exhibitor at one or all of the summer concerts.
