Help To Continue The Tradition

This Historic Jonesborough tradition of over 20 years is seeking support to continue this community event. Normally, the Music on the Square fundraiser takes place in March but was canceled the last two years due to COVID-19. To offset the costs, the event is accepting donations.

About The Event

Your visit to Historic Jonesborough in the heart of the Appalachian Mountains would not be complete without attending our Music on the Square weekly music festival. It’s music at its best with the townscape of downtown Jonesborough as the setting. Music on the Square provides live concerts featuring a variety of music that ranges from Americana, Bluegrass, Celtic, Irish, Old-Time, Blues and Jazz.


Held each Friday evening, July through September, Main Street is blocked off to through traffic, and everyone is invited to attend and enjoy the concerts that begin at 7pm.

This music festival is loved by all and attended by many; residents from all over East Tennessee including Johnson City, Bristol and Kingsport take part in this weekly event. Folks love to visit, chat, enjoy the music and meet new friends while in the picturesque setting of Tennessee’s oldest town.
