If you’ve never been to one of the concerts, here’s what you need to know. The concerts are sponsored by the Todd Community Preservation Organization, a nonprofit that works to preserve the Todd heritage, support the Todd community and businesses and owns and maintains Cook Memorial Park and Todd Island Park. The concerts are free but we will pass the pickle jar during intermission. Contributions in any amount are welcomed to help offset the cost of the bands.
The concerts are family-friendly and held outside in beautiful Cook Memorial Park situated in downtown Todd, NC, next to a babbling creek and mere yards from the New River. Bring a lawn chair or blanket to sit on. Large tents will be set up to protect concert goers from sun or rain. We’ll fire up the grill and hamburgers, veggie burgers, hotdogs, snacks and drinks will be available for purchase – or feel free to bring your own picnic.
The TCPO would not be able to hold the free concerts each year without the generous support of our sponsors. The concert sponsors for 2018 are:
Boondocks Restaurant and Brewery, West Jefferson
Cabin Store, West Jefferson & Boone
Elk Creek Mountain – an Echota Community, Todd
Go Postal, West Jefferson
High Gravity Adventures, Boone
Luger Haus Inn, Todd
MgE Gallery, Todd
Mountain Tile, Boone
Todd Mercantile & Bakery, Todd
River girl Fishing, Todd
