Around Historic Leonardtown

FREE CONCERTS, GREAT FOOD, DANCING, RAFFLES, PRIZES AND MORE SUMMER FUN!

 

The Commissioners of Leonardtown and the Leonardtown Business Association in partnership with the St. Mary's Arts Council and James LePore Productions are proud to announce the Leonardtown Summer Music Festival. This exciting new Festival combines the Leonardtown Summer Concert Series and the Downtown Tunes Concert Series into one amazing festival featuring great artists like Six Gun South, The Ryan Forrester Band, Latrice Carr,
Wesley Spangler, Robbie Boothe
and more. 

The Festival will kick off with the U.S. Navy Band Country Current performing Leonardtown Square on Saturday, May 18, 2019 in honor of Armed Forces Day and will run through Saturday, September 7, 2019 when the Festival concludes with Bushwoodstock III (a scholarship benefit fundraiser) at Leonardown Wharf.

Thanks to our generous Sponsors, the majority of the music festival concerts are FREE, except where noted ($). The festival offers something for everyone from family-friendly events to more adult oriented evenings. Order a Picnic from participating restaurants in town offering light refreshments to a full meal and a bottle of wine, and Enjoy a Kid-free Evening with Drop N' Dine where children will be entertained with kid-friendly activities at participating businesses (by reservation only).
