Summer Concerts Return to New Town

Community Announcement

Eight years ago Inclusion founder and local business owner Steve Rose was looking for a fun way to raise money for his charity and involve the whole community.  The New Town After Hours concert series was born as a result.  Bringing great live music to the area on a regular basis and providing a gethering place for friends and families to enjoy a ight out, the concerts were a big hit.  As New Town and the popularity of the concerts grew, Inclusion and it's board made the tought decision to move and take advantage of the newly renovated Lake Matoaka Amphitheater.

After several years in that beautiful location, we still struggle to get a consistent attendance so this year in parternship with James City County and New Town Associates, we have decided to return to New Town.  With their help promoting the Concert Series as a true community event and the convenience of the New Town location, we are very excited about this years' series. 

The 10 week concert series will be moving to Sullivan Square, 4301 New Town Avenue (behind Legacy Hall), every Thursday beginning June 23rd.  The concerts will have food and drink vendors as well as kids activities.  All of the proceeds go to Inclusion, please look at our website www.inclusion-i3.org to learn more about us and how we give back to the children in the community. 

Our new website www.newtownafterhours.org is still under construction but we will update it as new information is available.  We look forward to your support again this summer!
