UPDATE: TGIF Concert Series

2020 TGIF Concerts Cancelled

Upon hearing Governor Roy Cooper’s extension to the Stay at Home Order announced yesterday afternoon and the state’s plan for a 3-part phased reopening approach, the Historic Morganton Festival, Inc. has decided that it is within the public health’s interest that the 2020 TGIF Summer Concert Series be cancelled.

On Monday, March 30th our offices announced the cancellation of the May TGIF Concert dates and today we are announcing the cancellation of the remaining June and July dates. We will continue to follow the CDC’s guidelines and Governor Cooper’s orders throughout the year and will be making decisions regarding Fall and Winter event dates as more information comes available.

The TGIF Summer Concert Series, produced by the Historic Morganton Festival, Inc., has become a downtown Morganton summertime staple, having occurred annually for well over two decades. We look forward to the time when our community can come together once again and enjoy music and dance on the Courthouse Square.
