Chowan County’s Community Celebrates Summer

Chowan County’s community loves to celebrate! Our close-knit community is one of the reasons why so many people choose to move here. 

Whether it’s commemorating an historic event, such as the 250th Anniversary of the Edenton Tea Party, or cheering on our favorite baseball team, the Edenton Steamers, our community loves to gather for a celebration. 

And summer is the best time to celebrate our welcoming community, our beautiful location on the Albemarle Sound, and our love of good food and music at the Sounds of Summer Concert Series

Set against the stunning backdrop of Edenton’s picturesque waterfront along the Albemarle Sound, the Concert Series highlights the fun and camaraderie of Chowan County’s community. 

And this year, our Sounds of Summer Concert Series is better than ever because we’ve planned a weekend of fun activities to give you a taste of what it’s like to call this place home!

We’re bringing in a diverse lineup of talented musicians spanning various genres, from reggae to folk to bluegrass.

These Saturday evening concerts are free and open to the public, so if you want to experience the community in Chowan County, bring your lawn blanket or chair, set up by the waterfront, and enjoy the perfect summer night in Edenton. 

We’ve still got two more concerts scheduled for this summer, so plan to visit Edenton during the Sounds of Summer Concert Series and enjoy a full weekend of fun and celebrating! Here’s a look at the schedule of events.
