Pickin in the Park
August 21, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Elkins City Park is a lively place on Wednesday evenings from May through September, with country, gospel, bluegrass and old-time jam sessions open to all. The Augusta Heritage Center sponsors the free event with support from Elkins Parks and Recreation Commission (EPRC) giving musicians of all ages an opportunity to play music together in a family-friendly setting.
Visitors and beginners are welcome to attend the weekly sessions. Throughout the spring, summer and early fall, classic country and gospel jam sessions take place in the small pavilion along the path inside the park. Bluegrass musicians jam in the Sycamore Pavilion along Sycamore Street, and old-time musicians gather around picnic tables throughout the tree-shaded park. In case of rain, old-time jams take place under the large pavilion. The pavilions are wheelchair accessible.
