A New Season of Music at the Barn

Contributed photos

Music at the Barn returns to the Weston History & Culture Center on five Sundays in June, July, and September. Concerts by returning popular bands are accompanied by activities that will appeal to all ages.

Art lovers can stroll the grounds and take in the sculptures of Daniel Offutt. History lovers can tour the Coley House, recently recognized for its reinterpretation into the 1940s. Kids can enjoy crafts and games.

The Center will also have a new exhibition running by the time of the second concert: “Penned, Painted & Sculpted: Weston Artists 1900–1965.” Some concerts will be bring-your-own picnic opportunities, a food truck will be present at others.

Doors open for the entire series at 5:00, which is when activities start. Bands take the stage from 5:30 to 7:00. Tickets can be purchased at the door or online. Tickets are $15 for members of the Weston History & Culture Center, otherwise $20 per person. Admission for children 12 and under is free.
