Music Under the Stars 2015

Music Under the Stars 2015

Music Under the Stars continues in 2015 with a performance every Thursday night June through August 13th at 7 p.m. in front of Samuel Clemens' 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 ninth 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.
