2023 Belmont Friday Night Live Concert Series Returns


Get ready to dance in the field again during Belmont’s 2023 Friday Night Live concert series. The fun kicks off downtown on April 28th with Thurston Howell. Bring your family and friends out to Stowe Park for a fun night full of great music, cold drinks, delicious food, and dancing.

The 2023 schedule includes five concerts held on various Fridays in April, May, and June. The concerts will be held on the upper field of Stowe Park from 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 PM. Each evening kicks off with the opening of the beverage garden and music provided by local DJs at 6:00 PM. Featured bands take the stage at 7:00 PM.

Belmont will kick off its concert series with tunes from the yacht rock genre by Thurston Howell on Friday, April 28th.  This concert will not only open the 2023 concert season, but will also be the start of a weekend full of music, art, culture, and other festivities during Belmont’s annual Garibaldi Festival taking place on Saturday, April 29th. Belmont has been focused on increasing art and culture in the community, as demonstrated by the recent award-winning Moonlight on Main event, and is taking this great opportunity to continue that momentum.

The Friday Night Live concert series would not be possible without our generous sponsors.
