August 22 concert on the Library lawn. The Grafton Cornet Band is delighted to perform on the Grafton Library lawn (204 Main St, Grafton VT) on Sunday, August 22 at 5:00 pm. This is a fair weather concert, so please check this website if the weather is questionable. A cancellation will be announced here by 1:00 pm on that Sunday. It will be a great day to visit Grafton, so bring your friends.

The GCB will also play at the Grafton Town Picnic, but that is not open to the general public.


The 2021 plan: five outdoor concerts. The GCB will have three fair weather concerts this summer season. We have enough eager, vaccinated players who feel ready to return to an outdoor, vaccinated, distanced playing arrangement.


The Library lawn concerts are:

July 11, 5:00 (rehearsal 1 hour beforehand)

August 22, 5:00 (with rehearsal)
October 3, 2:00 (no rehearsal)


The band will perform at the Town Picnic for Grafton residents on July 31 and we'll play sometime for the good folks at Valley Cares Senior Living in Townshend.

Inclement weather cancellations will be announced on this webpage with at least 4 hours notice.


The Grafton Cornet Band is delighted that Glen D'Eon returns as our director.



The Grafton Cornet Band welcomes all to our (somewhat reduced) series of free summer concerts. We play all sorts of traditional band music as we have for 154 years. Our concerts are informal, so bring chairs or a blanket and maybe a picnic. On rainy days, we play in the beautiful Community Church in Grafton. Concerts in 2021 will be fair weather only.
