Music On Main

Those warm summer nights are just around the corner! As we get ready for Summer 2024, here's a quick preview and introduction to our annual Music on Main: Summer Concert Series in Downtown Newton!

Roads will close at 5:00 pm. Food Trucks open for business at 5:00 pm, and the band starts at 6:00 pm and continues until 8:30 pm.

What to bring:

WeatherPlease note: Due to the popularity of Music on Main in Downtown Newton, organizers make every effort to proceed with each concert as scheduled. However, when severe weather threatens, the safety of visitors, sponsors, and performers is of utmost concern. As a result, decisions on whether to continue or cancel a concert are based entirely on the potential risks posed by inclement weather. Should there be a weather threat, the decision to proceed will be made no later than 4:00 pm. Updates will be posted on Facebook, the City website, and the Downtown Newton Development Association website on the Downtown Happenings Page.

Bring the family, tell your friends, and share on social media! We hope to make your Thursday nights in Downtown Newton rockin'!
