Our annual outdoor musical celebration! 

PLEASE FORGIVE the last-minute updates and changes…. We are working hard to make this great event the best experience possible for all patrons!

LATEST UPDATE AS OF 5/21/2019 (see all details, including time changes): The 2019 “POPS” CONCERT WILL BE HELD AT THE NORTH CAROLINA TRANSPORTATION MUSEUM IN SPENCER, NC! (Click here for map.) It’s different this year, so pay attention to the details to save the most money!

IMPORTANT: Event is FREE and open to the public.  HOWEVER…. Because the Transportation Museum is a State property, the they are REQUIRED to charge parking and entrance fees for visitors entering the parking lot OR the Back Shop building until 3:00pm. SO… You can avoid all unnecessary charges by arriving at the parking lot no earlier than 3:00pm and plan to enter the back shop only AFTER they stop charging admission at 3:00pm. There is no charge for attending the Pops event; only for arriving early while the Museum is still charging admission.
