Schoooool is out. for. summer! With the pandemic behind us, we can finally travel and spend time with friends and family. The summer sun is calling us to go outside and enjoy all that Nature has to offer.  And what is better than a FREE outdoor concert? On the first Friday of each month from June to October, Clayton Merchants and Business Association (CMBA) presents on a free concert on the historic Rock House lawn, which is located on Main Street, Clayton, GA. Music starts at 6 p.m. and ends at 8 p.m. And you are right in the midst of shopping, eating and strolling to your heart's content!  Free music along with the beautiful view of Screamer Mountain is guaranteed to be a good time, and donations are welcome as each month a local non-profit receives the contributions. 

This past Friday was the jumping off point for the concert series with the Southern Highland Music Foundation (some of the Foxfire guys and gal) playing to great turnout. The donations went to the Foxfire Museum (fittingly). The next concert is July 1st with Krystal Halvorson, which will be 4th of July weekend, is sure to be entertaining for all. 



So if you happen to be in town that day, swing by one of our fantastic restaurants and order some To-Go food. Then stroll around downtown, checking out all the fabulous shops on Main Street (and you might as well pop in and see us since you're in the neighborhood ☺️), til your order is ready. You can bring your own chairs, but if you happen to forget yours, there are some provided too- first come, first serve. Then you grab your food and head over to the Rock House for a DIY "dinner and a show." Not telling you what to do, but it does sound like a lovely evening.
