Memorial Day Weekend is the official start of summer – and also an opportunity to honor those who lost their lives in service to our country. You can observe the holiday at one of these events happening in Southern Maryland this weekend, May 26-29, 2017.
Summerseat Hosts Memorial Day Celebration and Concert
Celebrate Memorial Day at Summerseat Farm with a day of history and music!
Summerseat presents its Memorial Day Celebration and Concert on Sunday, May 28, from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. The event will recognize current and veteran military members.
The day’s events will include a Confederate Veterans Civil War Encampment, 1800’s cooking and outdoor living demonstrations, Boy Scout Demonstrations, local music, children’s activities and crafts, a chance to feed our farm animals, and much more. Popular local musician Joseph Norris will play music and tell stories of the Civil War and local history during the day.
The highlight of the day will be an outdoor “Twilight Concert” by the “Band of America’s Few.” The concert, which will begin at 5 p.m., honors the flight of Naval and Marine Corps aviators and astronauts. This band, with 50 musicians performing at this concert, is comprised of veteran and retired U. S. Marine Corps musicians who give special performances this time of year.
Bring a chair or blanket and enjoy the whole day! Cost is $10 per family and all current and veteran military families will be admitted for free.
