The “Salem After Five” concert returns to the Salem Farmers Market in 2023 with some of the region’s most popular bands, an array of incredible food trucks and several very worthy charities.
All attendees are encouraged to wind down the work week by relaxing in the heart of Downtown Salem. Gates open for each performance at 5 p.m. and the shows will last until 9 p.m. Patrons are encouraged to bring their lawn chairs or a blanket.
Food from local vendors, children’s activities, and adult beverages from P.A. Short will be available. 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 sponsored by Pinnacle Financial Partners and Pepsi. 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.
