There are a lot of events here that occur several times a year – like the bluegrass concerts at Spencer Penn on the first Friday of every month. Most of these events have been disrupted by the pandemic. Some have returned. Some may be lost forever. I honestly don’t know.
First Friday Live Bluegrass at Spencer Penn (Spencer)
The Spencer Penn Center hosts a live bluegrass concert on the first Friday of every month. The cost of admission is low ($5) and the live bluegrass is fantastic. This has been a big draw and people come from all over to hear the music and maybe do a little flatfooting. Check the Spencer Penn Facebook page for more info as things are a little different during the pandemic precautions but they did restart in September of 2020. 2020
