Event Navigation

The Town of Floyd is introducing “A Small Town Summer” this summer season. A series of free events taking place in The Warren G Lineberry Park throughout the summer months starting on Thursday, June 8th and concluding on August 31st, 2017.

The Town of Floyd is producing a series of free events designed to provide a fun, family-friendly atmosphere in The Warren G Lineberry Park. These events will take place on alternating Thursdays from early June to the end of August and will feature, music, movies, and theater productions with lots of additional activities provided to highlight the park and community organizations.

The closing concert on August 31st will feature an incredible performance by Mountain Heart and After Jack. Mountain Heart is the band that has been fearlessly revolutionizing the way acoustic music can be presented and played. Mountain Heart has gained legions of loyal fans both as a result of their superlative musicianship and just as notably, their incendiary live performances. After Jack will open the evening. After Jack is a musical celebration of togetherness. Named 2014 Americana Vocal Group of the Year by the Appalachian Cultural Music Association, the trio couples a modern sensibility with distinctly old-time energy to blend bluegrass, gospel and folk elements. Combine your most beloved musical memories with a foot-stomping string band and top it off with harmonies that spring straight from the soul of the mountains, and you’ve got After Jack. 

The Town of Floyd’s Small Town Summer Event Series is free and open to the public. Gates will be open and access provided to the public starting at 6 PM on all Floyd Small Town Summer events. Movies will begin when the sun goes down and other times for music and other activities will be listed on the website floydsmalltownsummer.com
