• Concerts on the Creek

  • These mountains are known as much for the music that comes out of them as they are for their picturesque vistas, cascading waterfalls and alluring trails.

    Some of the world’s finest musicians have come from Western North Carolina and that rich tradition carries on today.

    Here in Jackson County, the Town of Sylva, Jackson County Parks and Recreation Department and Jackson County Chamber of Commerce team up to produce the Concerts on the Creek series at the Bridge Park gazebo in Sylva every Friday from 7-9 p.m., typically from Memorial Day through Labor Day.

    Due to the Covid 19 pandemic, organizers are beginning to cautiously schedule an abbreviated season of Concerts on the Creek. The tentative plan is to start the season about a month later than usual on Friday, July 2 and end it on Friday, Sept. 3 (Labor Day weekend). That will be 8 Fridays of Concerts on the Creek, with the Hook, Line and Drinker Festival (Saturday, Aug. 21) and Greening Up the Mountains Festival (Aug. 28) sprinkled in there for good measure.

    We will only move forward as the state's outdoor gathering size limits dictate, as supplied by N.C. Gov. Roy Cooper. We want everyone to be safe and we'll certainly be encouraging social distancing, mask wearing, and hand sanitizing as long as it's still recommended by state and local officials. We will be in close contact with our public health department officials to assure a safe experience for all. Stay tuned!

    Concerts on the Creek events are free and open to the public with donations encouraged. Bring a chair or blanket and enjoy the shows. No alcohol, smoking or coolers are allowed. Dogs must be on a leash.
