Hilltop Summer Music Series

Every summer for the past three years, the Bookcliffs Arts Center has sponsored a summer concert series up on the hill, where the public is invited to enjoy an array of musical styles from an equally diverse array of local bands. Free to public, you are invited to join us this summer on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays for 90-minute concerts beginning in June. Please visit our calendar for more information.
