Concerts in the Village (May – Jun)

The Florida Travel Guide named the Mattie Kelly Arts Foundation’s Concerts in the Village as one of the “Top Ten Things to Do” in Northwest Florida. The Foundation presents annual concerts in a spring and summer series featuring a diverse genre of music suitable for all ages and families spanning four generations. National, regional and local musicians perform annually on the Dugas Stage.

Enjoy a night under the stars at the most beautiful outdoor music venue on the Emerald Coast. Bring a bottle of wine, your favorite craft beer, some delicious snacks, and a blanket or chair. Food and drinks are available for purchase!
