Where’s the best place to park?
The Ball Field at the Primary School is the dedicated Music on Main parking lot. Alternatively, public parking can also be found in the municipal lot on Main Street and behind Weaverville United Methodist Church and First Baptist Church. The Weaverville United Methodist Church charges a $5 donation per car which will go towards their youth program. We always recommend carpooling, especially if you want to enjoy some beer and wine. Please remember that street parking on residential streets is prohibited in Weaverville.
Will there be bathrooms?
Yes, porta potties will be located along the side of the Frontier building next to the Kids Zone.
Can I bring my dog?
Music on Main is a crowded, bustling event with loud music. Yes, furry friends are welcome, but we only recommend bringing your pet if it will be happy in that environment.
Do I need a ticket?
Nope! Music on Main is free and open to the public. Come and go as you please!
What if it rains?
Music on Main is rain or shine. It’s unlikely we will have prolonged rain all evening, however there’s a chance we will have spotty afternoon rain. Keep an eye on the forecast and bring a raincoat, umbrella, good shoes, etc. because we will be having lots of fun wet or dry.
Is there seating?
There is no seating on the street. Bring a folding chair if you would like a comfy spot to sit and listen to the music. You are also welcome to bring snacks and a cooler with non-alcoholic beverages. The Health and Wellness Zone will have some chairs if you need to rest for a moment, and the Food Court will have tables and chairs to use while eating.
What’s the situation with alcohol?
If you would like to purchase alcohol, first you will need to visit the ID Check Tent and purchase a wristband. Wristbands are $2. At the same time, you can purchase drink tokens. The ID Check Tent accepts cash, card, and venmo. You can exchange a drink token for draft beer and wine in the Beer Tent. Please remember that no sales will take place at the Beer Tent. If you would like to buy more beer or wine from the Beer Tent, you will need to revisit the ID Check Tent and purchase more drink tokens.
Music on Main has obtained an ABC Special Event permit which includes a strict set of rules that we must follow:
- No outside alcohol can be brought inside the Music on Main boundary.
- If you purchase alcohol from an establishment, that alcohol must be consumed within the boundaries of that establishment.
- If you purchase alcohol from Music on Main’s Beer Tent, that alcohol cannot be carried inside an establishment.
- Only alcohol purchased from the Beer Tent can be consumed on the street.
- Alcohol cannot be carried outside of the Music on Main boundary.
- We can only give two drinks at a time per person.
- You must be wearing a wristband if you are consuming alcohol on the street.
Every year we reapply for an ABC’s Special Event permit to host Music on Main and are granted permission due to prior years’ compliance. Please help us to host this event in the future by following ABC’s rules.

How much do drinks cost?
Beer and Wine Tent:
Draft Beer is $6 and Wine is $7. Due to the price difference, beer and wine have different tokens, which means when you purchase your tokens at the ID Check Tent you will need to know which you would like. We know that makes things more complicated, but the wine available is some awesome stuff from Maggie B’s which is just more expensive than beer. We had a choice between (A) having a less complicated token experience and raising beer prices to match the wine at $7 or (B) making y’all choose which token you want at purchase but keeping beer cheaper at $6. We chose to save y’all a dollar.
Bottled Water and La Croix are available for purchase at the ID Check Tent for $1. There is also free ice water in the Health and Wellness Zone. Stay hydrated folks.
Should I bring my kids?
Yes! The Kids Zone, sponsored by Eliada Homes, is located in the Primary School Parking Lot. There will be fun activities like popcorn machine, hula hoops, toy trucks and cars, corn hole, photo booth, connect four, spike ball, ring toss, tic-tac-toe, checkers, bubbles, chalk, tricycles, and a fire truck. No alcohol is allowed in the Kids Zone.
Where and what time is the road closed?
Main Street in between Merrimon and Brown will be closed from 12pm – 10pm. The intersection of Merrimon and Main will be open all day when travelling on North Main only.
Is there something to eat?
Yes! A Food Court will be located in the Prescription Pad parking lot and will have food for purchase from Twisted Laurel, The Shoppe at the Prescription Pad, and the *New* Salt Face Mule (opening this summer!).
In addition, you can dine in or take out from Twisted Laurel, Maggie B’s and Main Street Grill within the Music on Main Space, and The Shoppe will be scooping their ice cream all night. Within two blocks you can find food at Glass Onion, Eluvium, and Blue Mountain Pizza. PS – Blue Mountain Pizza will be selling pizza by the slice!
You’re also welcome to bring a cooler – but please no alcoholic beverages or glass.
Who organizes Music on Main?
Music on Main began in 2015 from a group of locals who loved Weaverville. They volunteered their time and energy to create this free community outdoor concert just for the love of Weaverville. Today it is organized by the Weaverville Business Association, a non-government and nonprofit, with support from the Town of Weaverville. Music on Main has always been for the people, by the people. We always appreciate all of our volunteers who help us produce this free concert open to everyone.
Can I visit the rest of Main Street and still hear the music?
The music can be heard all down Main Street and many of our other wonderful businesses will be open! We encourage you to sit on their patios and eat, drink, and listen. Check out Leveller, Hoppy Trees, Eluvium, Main Street Grill, Glass Onion, Well Bred, and Blue Mountain Pizza.
Is there anything to do after the music ends at 9pm?
Yep! Check out Hoppy Trees, Eluvium, and Twisted Laurel, all open until 10.
