Concert on the Library lawn. Our first concert in our 158th season is June 23 on the Grafton Library lawn (Community Church for rain) at 5:00. Our concerts are free, family-friendly, and informal. We fill the Village for an hour with music (all five streets). Bring chairs or a blanket for comfort and maybe a picnic. It's a great tradition.

The Grafton Cornet Band welcomes all to our series of free summer concerts. We play all sorts of traditional band music as we have for 157 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 (white clapboard) in Grafton. More information…
