The Sounds of Summer Concert Series

Edenton loves to celebrate! 

Whether it’s commemorating an historic event, such as the 250th Anniversary of the Edenton Tea Party, or cheering on our favorite baseball team, the Edenton Steamers, our community loves to gather for a celebration. 

And summer is the best time to celebrate our welcoming community, our beautiful location on the Albemarle Sound, and our love of good food and music at the Sounds of Summer Concert Series

This year, our Sounds of Summer Concert Series is better than ever because we’ve planned a weekend of fun activities for residents and visitors to enjoy. 

Set against the stunning backdrop of Edenton’s picturesque waterfront along the Albemarle Sound, our Concert Series promises to deliver three sensational evenings of family-friendly entertainment and fun over the summer months. 

We’re bringing in a diverse lineup of talented musicians spanning various genres, from reggae to folk to bluegrass.

These Saturday evening concerts are free and open to the public, so bring your lawn blanket or chair, set up by the waterfront, and enjoy the perfect summer night in Edenton. We’ll even have food trucks and a beer garden at The Herringbone Trolley for your enjoyment.

This summer, plan to visit Edenton during the Sounds of Summer Concert Series and enjoy a full weekend of fun and celebrating! Here’s a look at the schedule of events.
