Monday Night Concerts in the Park are held rain or shine under cover at Veterans’ Memorial Field in Athol. Bring a comfortable chair or blanket; wear your dancin’ shoes; and dress in layers for changeable mountain weather up there in the north country. Local not-for-profit groups offer food.

Hosted by the Town of Thurman, the concerts take place throughout the months of July and August at 7pm on Mondays.
