Music in Mason is back in 2019 with great music and fun for the community to enjoy! The City will be hosting seven concerts on Mason’s Downtown Plaza on Friday evenings throughout the months of June and July. In addition to live music, the events will also feature food, beverages, kids’ activities, local business displays and more!
The 2019 concerts will kick off on Friday, June 7 with a Downtown Block Party beginning at 6:00 p.m. featuring music by Chuck Brisbin and his band playing the best of rock and blues music followed by a mix of pop, funk, and folk music by the Brother Smith Band. Music will continue throughout the evening until 10 p.m. Kids activities, vendors and exhibitors will fill the streets so residents are encouraged to come out and end the work week with a night of live music and entertainment all for a good cause! Proceeds from beverage sales will benefit the Mason Parks and Recreation Foundation’s all-inclusive Common Ground playground and the American Legion’s efforts to rehabilitate a home for veterans in need.

Stop in to your favorite participating establishment in the DORA district to enjoy a beverage outside while listening to the music and participating in all the fun activities!
