Music On Main in Sparta

Whatever your preference is in mountain music there will be something for you in Downtown Sparta, NC on the First Friday of each month this summer.  The Heart of Main merchants, restaurateurs, and artists welcome you as they open their stores to live music between 5:00 pm and 10:00 pm (though most bands begin at 6:00 pm) at different venues downtown.  Each month the site and the artists change, but the atmosphere, food, dancing, and music is the same. 

Featuring Blue Grass, Old Time, Americana, Classic Rock, Folk and Gospel, music is along the walkable streets of Sparta.  You can eat at several restaurants from hot dogs to gourmet, sit on the courthouse steps, dance or check out the classic cars with live music no more than a few steps away.  All venues are open to the public at no cost.  We are a family and kid friendly town.
