Every summer, the Banner Elk Chamber of Commerce sponsors a series of weekly concerts at the Tate-Evans Town Park Amphitheater.  Held on Thursday nights, these family-friendly concerts showcase a variety of local and regional bands playing everything from southern rock to oldies, soul, country, and funk. Music begins at 6:30 PM.

Bring your own lawn chairs or blankets. Food, beer and wine vendors set up on site. Small picnic coolers are allowed, along with plastic cups (no glass). Pets are not allowed in the concert area nearest the stage, but they are welcome to join you in the adjacent park and greenway area. There’s also a playground in the park for kids to enjoy.
