Entertainment Announced for Athens-Concord Town Social

Athens, W.Va. – The 21st annual “Almost Heaven in 2007” Athens-Concord Town Social will be Sunday, August 12, from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. on the front lawn of the Concord University campus.

Entertainment will be Ed Hartman’s Midnight Ramblers, playing from 1:30 p.m. to 2:45 p.m. and Billy Goat Gruff, playing from 3:15 p.m. to 4:45 p.m.

The Town of Athens and Concord University jointly plan the social, which is traditionally held on the second Sunday of each August. The goal of the Town Social is to provide an opportunity for residents of the Town of Athens and surrounding areas, the Concord community, and visitors to socialize in a small-town setting -- 600-800 guests typically attend.

Vendors are invited to set up a booth, free-of-charge, to display and sell their handicrafts, and local musicians provide toe-tappin’ entertainment for the guests. ARAMARK provides the fixin’s for a picnic, also free-of-charge.
