Ashland Theatre and Hanover Arts & Activities Center have announced a new outdoor concert series called “Tunes on the Tracks.” With a kickoff date of Saturday, August 29, the live shows are planned for every other Saturday afternoon through the end of October.
What should customers expect at each event?
This family-friendly outdoor concert series will be held on the front lawn of the Hanover Arts and Activities Center, right on the railroad tracks. Each ticket provides admittance for up to five people who will be seated in a dedicated 10’x10’ viewing area. Concessions will be available and will include snacks, soft drinks, and adult (alcoholic) beverages. Patrons are expected to stay within their designated spot except when visiting the restroom or the concession area. Each concert should last about 90 minutes to two hours.
What type of music will be showcased?
Tunes on the Tracks will feature some of the area’s finest local bands, playing music across multiple genres including rock, soul, country, folk, and bluegrass.
Who would enjoy the events?
Plan to bring the whole family! All ages are welcome, although valid photo IDs will be required to purchase or consume alcohol.
How did this collaboration come together?
Ashland Theatre and Hanover Arts & Activities Center are facing many of the same challenges trying to operate safely during the pandemic. With outdoor dining and drive-in movies drawing people back to the community again, each organization realized that customers still feel more comfortable gathering outside rather than indoors. Creating a new event series was made easier by combining the experience and staff of both businesses.
Isn’t Ashland a wonderful community for this type of creativity?
