The warmth of the late-day sun on your face . . . the swell of music and the smell of popcorn carried on an evening breeze . . . Brandon’s wonderful summer concert series have attracted over 100 folks to each performance and over 200 to some of them!!

Every Wednesday night in July and August, the beautiful grounds behind the Brandon Inn are the site of a free concert for our community. We have an eclectic line-up of bands on tap. Join the folks who come out and relax with some quality music with their friends and neighbors. The kids have fun running around the pretty grounds next to the Neshobe river, and we all enjoy free popcorn! Adult beverages are served up by the Brandon Inn, available in the outdoor lounge area, so you don’t miss a note of the music.

Please try to adhere to social distancing as much as possible and hang in your own pod. We want this to be safe and fun and not do anything to compromise all the hard work that Vermonters have been doing to keep us all healthy.
Many thanks to the chamber committee that’s put together this “new” style of concerts and done so much work to keep things on an even keel. This is the 5th year we’ve done this and everyone seems to enjoy the music and camaraderie on our sweet summer nights.
Thanks go out to Stacey Doucette, Seth Hopkins, Sarah Pattis, Wade Davis & Bill Moore.
Rain outs will NOT be held inside the Inn. We’ll try to put a sign out that states “No Concert Tonight”
Thanks for your support in our fundraiser and for coming out to support the great bands we have year after year.
