Music on the Lawn is a family-friendly event that is open to all.

In case of rain, concerts will be held inside The Martha at The Backstage. Free parking is available at The Martha.

Music on the Lawn is in its third year. The series was created by Abingdon Music Experience, which presents music throughout the year, from the January Jams at Barter Theatre, to the summer Thursday Jams series, held at the Market Pavilion in Abingdon.

Admission is free for the concert series. For more information, contact Special Events Coordinator Sara Saavedra Cardinale at 276-676-2282 or scardinale@abingdon-va.gov.
