Salem After Five Returns to Farmers Market


The “Salem After Five” concert series is returning home to the Salem Farmers Market in 2021 and fan favorite “Domino” is set to welcome folks back with the season’s opening show on Friday, April 30.

While the current COVID-19 safety precautions and guidelines will be in effect for each concert, music fans are encouraged to bring their lawn chairs and enjoy a relaxing night outdoors in Downtown Salem. Gates will open for each performance at 5 p.m. and the shows will last until 9 p.m.

Food from local vendors, children’s activities, and adult beverages from P.A. Short will be available for patrons. Tickets prices are still just $5 for adults and kids 12-and-under are admitted free. Once again, all proceeds from the concerts will benefit several worthwhile charities throughout Virginia’s Blue Ridge region.

The Salem Farmers Market is located on the corner of Main and Broad streets and “Salem After Five” is presented by the City of Salem Parks and Recreation Department and Q99.  Pinnacle Financial Partners, Pepsi, P.A. Short and the Comfort Inn and Suites are sponsoring the concerts this year.

Coolers, outside food, drinks, rollerblades, skateboards, and pets are not allowed on the premises.  For additional information, call Salem Parks and Recreation at 540-375-3057.
