Big Band & Jazz

The return of spring means the return of one of Lexington's longest-running and most beloved concert series – Big Band & Jazz. With a full schedule of live music planned, concert-goers can enjoy weekly big band or jazz music at Moondance Amphitheater and Ecton Park. Picnics are encouraged and patrons should bring a lawn chair or blanket for seating.

Lexington Parks & Recreation is taking precautions to make sure everyone can have fun and stay safe. Audience members must sit at least 6' away from those outside of their group. 

Plan to wear your mask when you are on the move such as entering, exiting, and using the restroom.
