The Ridgway Concert Series is held every Thursday in July, from 6 till dark, in Town Park, and it’s FREE to attend. For 2015 we’ve again got FIVE Thursdays on tap for your listening and dancing pleasure: July 2nd, 9th, 16th, 23rd and 30th! Our concerts feature a variety of high quality national bands, with local and regional bands opening the shows. The music genre has evolved to cover a very eclectic and diverse range of styles, with acts playing everything from bluegrass and folk, to funk, swing, country, alt-country and jazz, as well as just about any combination of those styles that you can imagine. The music is always family friendly so the young, the elders, and everyone in between will enjoy the concerts. We’ll have local beer on tap, margaritas & wine, as well as great food, drinks and snacks from local vendors!

We’re thrilled to announce our 2015 lineup!!

We’ve been woefully negligent in sharing an incredible little promo video created by local videographer Abel Lannan of Phresh Act Productions. Apologies Abel, but better-late-than-never, right? Enjoy folks:



It’s been a long time since we’ve updated the site, but as I’m sure most of you are aware, we’re an all-volunteer operation here, and we needed our beauty rest after the amazing month of music we had last July. I hope you didn’t miss that last show on the 31st, with Peter Rowan and Frank Solivan & Dirty Kitchen; that was one for the ages! We recently learned that Frank and his band were nominated for a Grammy!

Check out the story of one of last summer’s most popular artists and their Grammy-nominated album, Cold Spell, for Best Bluegrass Album!

Stay tuned folks, as before you know it we’ll be announcing this year’s lineup! Also soon to come, details about this May’s Love Your Valley Brewfest. We’ve lost track, but are pretty sure this is our 18th annual event!

Be sure to keep checking back to learn all the details on our Schedule Page!

We’ve got our permanent lighting up and working, and this year’s sound promises to be better than ever too. We can’t wait!!

Don’t forget to check out our Photo & Video Gallery Page too.


Help us put the finishing touches on our new permanent stage!

Hard to believe, but we completed our new stage two summers ago now. Contact us if you would like to make a donation of time or money to help complete the project. Next up on our to-do list is rigging to hang (“fly”) speakers off the roof of the stage, improving the sound for everyone in the park. We always need your help to accomplish these upgrades and improvements!
