INOLA is working on several concert series for Summer and Fall of 2021.
INOLA is planning to restart our live music and entertainment events that began winter of 2019!!! Covid-19 made it impossible to fulfill our 2020 schedule. With the vaccine, we are hoping more events will be allowed to happen and we plan to hopefully and more musical acts and events to our schedule. We will continue our Socially Distanced concerts, movies and entertainment like our massively successful Socially Distanced Jazz event last October. INOLA’s expansive lawn amphitheater at Sugar Lake and our 6,000 SF Orchard pavilion is where we plan to host many exciting events in 2021.
Here are some ideas of what we have planned as well of some events already confirmed for 2021, based upon what transpires with the pandemic:
May 13th, 2021 – “The Future Artists Event” – Fannin High School Arts weekend
June 26th Blue Ridge Mountains Wine and Jazz Festival – The largest music event of the year in the region. VIP seating limited to 100 in the Orchard Pavilion, lawn seating up to 1500. Covid-19 Social Distancing guidelines will be adhered to. GET TICKETS
