Each summer, Mancelona Chamber of Commerce hosts several music concerts for all to come and enjoy, at no cost to them. It's an opportunity to go out, have a night on the town without having to dip into your pockets, sit back and relax, visit with friends and neighbors, and just enjoy some good music.
All concerts are held on Tuesday evenings from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. downtown Mancelona in the street on North Maple, between State Street and M-88 Highway in the area known as Triangle Park (where the clock is). Bring lawn chairs and blankets, whatever you are most comfortable with. In case of rain, concerts are moved across the highway to the Farmers Market pavilion located next to the Buck Pole on the east side of U.S. 131 by the traffic light, in Railroad Park.
