30th Anniversary season will have to wait

     This year marks the 30th Anniversary of Concerts in the Plaza, but fans will have to wait to celebrate since COVID-19 restrictions on group gatherings and six-foot social distancing requirements make it difficult to proceed, even with caution.

      Until restrictions are loosened or lifted, the concerts will be suspended.  In the event that only a limited number of performances are impacted, they may be rescheduled for the later part of September. 

     Monitor the City’s website and Facebook page for updates to the concert schedule.  Questions may be directed to Kimberly Mayo, Event and Venue Coordinator, at 904.825.1004 or via email at
