Tuesday Tunes with Faster Than Walking

Tuesday Tunes is now a FREE concert series! James Monroe's Highland, in partnership with The Front Porch, will host the 4th annual Tuesday Tunes, a three-part series of summertime evening concerts at the home of President James Monroe. These performances are a prefect opportunity to bring the family out with blanket and chairs in tow to enjoy music from Virginia and the mid-Atlantic region!

The first Tuesday Tunes of the season will take place on Jun 26, from 5:30 to 8:30 pm and will feature Faster Than Walking!

Local food and beverage vendors will be on-site. Guests are encouraged to buy or pack a picnic and experience the beauty of James Monroe's Highland at dusk. While alcohol will be available for purchase at Tuesday Tunes, guests are asked to leave their own alcoholic beverages at home.
