Thursday nights in June, July and August from 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm we offer the community admission to the Lawn Chairs and Liberty Performance Series. Music lovers may bring blankets and lawn chairs to Polegreen and enjoy the sound of terrific bands. The site opens at 5 to visitors and free parking is available along and across Heatherwood Drive next to the historic site. Catered BBQ and a variety of cold beverages are available for purchase. Because of the band contracts we offer no "Rain Dates." In June, we enjoyed approximately 300 people and families attend the En'Novation concert which performed Motown/beach music on June 26, 2014. On July 24th, we host Party of Four, which is known as "America's #1 Tribute to Jangle Pop!" So get ready to relive all your favorite pop hits from the 80s and 90s!
