Free Events from the City of New Albany

Building on the success of the City of New Albany’s 2023 Summer Concert Series that featured three performances with an estimated attendance of 900+, we have secured four acts to entertain City residents and visitors. All concerts will take place on select Thursday evenings at the Hinson Amphitheater from 7 to 8:30 p.m. following the New Albany Farmers Market. Concertgoers are encouraged to visit the farmers market and local DORA establishments to purchase food and drink to bring into the amphitheater. The concert series is offered at no charge and open to the public.
