Newton, NC – The Downtown Newton Development Association is excited to resume its series of Bright Future Concerts beginning Saturday, June 19.

Bright Future Concerts will be held from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Frank & Sue Jones Amphitheatre, which is in Downtown Newton on Main Avenue across from the 1924 Courthouse.

The June 19 concert will feature Darrell Harwood. Harwood is an everyday working man who happens to be an extremely talented singer and high-energy entertainer. His personal work ethic and integrity spill over into his music, allowing him to connect with fans in a special way. His magnetic personality and easygoing ways draw audiences into his performances.

In addition to Harwood’s performance, other activities for the whole family include a kid zone with an inflatable obstacle course, food trucks, and a beer garden provided by Community Brewing Ventures. Bright Future Concerts encourage visitors to experience the amazing shopping and dining opportunities in Downtown Newton.
