Please note: Due to the popularity of Music on Main in Downtown Newton, organizers make every effort to proceed with each concert as scheduled. However, when severe weather threatens, the safety of visitors, sponsors, and performers is of utmost concern. As a result, decisions on whether to continue or cancel a concert are based entirely on the potential risks posed by inclement weather. Should there be a weather threat, the decision to proceed will be made no later than 4:00 pm. Updates will be posted on Facebook, the City website, and Downtown Newton Development Association website on the Downtown Happenings Page.

Bring the family, tell your friends, and share on social media. Thursday’s are sure to be rocking in Downtown Newton!! Everyone Welcome!!!
