Okemo's Jackson Gore Summer Music Series returns

May 21, 2018


LUDLOW, Vt. – Okemo Mountain Resort kicks off summer 2018 with the return of the Jackson Gore Summer Music Series presented by William Raveis Real Estate Vermont Properties Team. The Jackson Gore Summer Music Series features free concerts scheduled from 6 to 9 p.m. most Friday nights throughout the summer. Kicking off the series on June 8 is Version 6, a cover band that plays a wide variety of dance tunes from the 1960s to today’s top hits.

On Friday nights throughout the summer season, the lawn in the courtyard at Okemo’s Jackson Gore Inn is transformed into an outdoor concert venue featuring popular local and regional bands. Admission is free and the grounds open at 5 p.m. Families are welcome and attendees are encouraged to bring lawn chairs or picnic blankets. In case of rain, the concerts will move under cover. Dining options include fresh-from-the-grill burgers, hot dogs, and other summertime favorites. Beer, wine and soft drinks are available for purchase as well. Full-service dining with al fresco seating in the courtyard is offered at Jackson Gore’s Coleman Brook Tavern.

Following Vision 6 on June 8, the summer lineup for the Jackson Gore Summer Music includes: Jenni Johnson and the Jazz Junkateers, June 15; Cold Chocolate, June 22; CoPilot, June 29; Big Fez & the Surfmatics, July 6; Deadgrass, July 20; Dojo, July 27; CK3, August 10; Studio 2, a Beatles tribute band, August 17; 2Adam12, August 24; The Grift, August 31.

Okemo’s Adventure Zone stays open late most Friday evenings for concertgoers who like a little adventure with their music. Visitors especially enjoy The Timber Ripper Mountain Coaster and the Haulback Challenge Course. There’s trampoline bungee jumping, miniature golf, disc golf, a climbing pinnacle, zipline tours, Segway Personal Transport tours, and the Amp Energy Big Air Bag. Each of Okemo’s Adventure Zone features is priced individually or visitors can purchase an Adventure Zone Day Pass wristband. Special Twilight wristbands are available for purchase on Friday evenings during the Jackson Gore Summer Music Series.

In addition to the Jackson Gore Summer Music Series, Okemo will host several other events this summer: Okemo’s All Come Home Music Festival, July 12-14; Blueberry Fest, July 22; Hops in the Hills Beer & Wine Festival, August 3-5; Fall into Winter, October 6.
