Half Moon Concerts at Clay on Main
TWO CONCERTS REMAIN IN 2022
DATE POSTED: 10/20/22
The Autumn 2022 season opened on October 14 with the band AKS -- the is perfect first act of the reopened venue because band member Mike Petruaskus is the person who first envisioned making a musical performing venue within Clay on Main.
The next concert will be on October 28. Doors will open at 7:30 and the concert will begin at 8:00 pm. There will be a brief intermission around 9:00 pm after which the concert will continue until 10:00 pm. During intermission you can enjoy complimentary refreshments while browsing the art gallery in Clay on Main and the newly reopened gift shop featuring local artists. Please park in the lot for Frieden’s United Church of Christ at 337 Main Street to save street parking for Clay on Main’s residential neighbors. Clay on Main requests a $15.00 per person donation to compensate the musicians and cover operating expenses for the facility.

Maggie and Eric’s son, Graham, will open the evening’s performance.
