Juneberry Ridge in Norwood will host a series of concerts this summer as a way to give back to the community and showcase to the public the farm and its many amenities.

The inaugural concert series, Juneberry Jam, will be held on seven consecutive Saturdays from May 22 through July 3 on the farm’s manicured hillside. Juneberry is at 40120 Old Cottonville Road.

The series will kick off with the Nashville-based country duo The Young Fables, which is comprised of former American Idol contestant Laurel Wright and guitarist and vocalist Wesley Lunsford.

“We want the community to get involved with what we’re doing here,” said Juneberry Business Development Manager Rob Boisvert. “We want people to visit us on a regular basis and, in turn, become habitual visitors to Norwood.”

Gates will open at 5 p.m. and the performances will run from 7 p.m. until 9 p.m. Food and beverages will be provided.

General Admission costs $15, but it is free for kids 12 and younger. People can also purchase an all-access pass for $55, which includes admission to any or all Saturdays and premium seating.

Juneberry staff will adhere to Covid safety regulations.
