Music Under the Stars 2014

Music Under the Stars continues in 2014 with a performance every Thursday night June through July at 7 p.m. in front of Samuel Clemens's Boyhood Home. Bring your lawn chairs, friends and family, appetite and ear for music. Each week there will be food from a different local restaurant or not-for-profit available for purchase. This is our eighth summer of bringing FREE OUTDOOR CONCERTS to downtown Hannibal.

The Mark Twain Boyhood Home & Museum partners with the Hannibal Parks & Recreation Department, who provide an alternate venue should rain force a concert indoors.  Music Under the Stars will be located inside the Admiral Coontz Recreation Center if rain.

Come on down to Sam's Boyhood home and enjoy 
another free outdoor concert under the stars.  Bring your
