JACKSON NH – Dance the night away under the stars and the Jackson Covered Bridge on Saturday August 05, 2017 starting at 7:30 PM. Featuring… Jon Sarty and the White Mountain Boys. As with all talented musicians they will have their own following as well as everyone who has been to the Covered Bridge Dance in the past, therefore we recommend you come early and pick your spot. There are a number of tables and chairs provided but they go fast. Bring your own chairs, blankets, friends, family and, of course Dancing Shoes. The Jackson Community comes together for this Old Fashioned block party once a year and you are invited.
It isn’t often you see any of New Hampshire’s Covered Bridges closed to vehicles… but on this very special night the Jackson Covered Bridge will be closed from 5 PM until midnight for this great event. You know an event is worth the trip when it stops traffic… signs will be posted and our very own Jackson Police crew will be on hand to redirect traffic as needed. If you are visiting a local business located in the loop merely continue north on route 16 and take the first right after the Covered Bridge to get into Jackson Village. Please note… all Jackson Village businesses normally opened at night will most certainly remain opened during this event. So please… mark your calendars and join us for a night of Dancing under the Stars and the Jackson Covered Bridge.
Parking for this event will be marked. The entrance fee to the Covered Bridge Dance is FREE thanks to our major sponsors: Whitney’s Inn at Jackson, Inn at Jackson, Flossie’s General Store, Homer’s Appliance and the Inn at Ellis River. Donations are always welcome.
Be sure to come hungry and enjoy a wonderfully delicious menu prepared by Apple Buns!
As this event is weather dependent please check back for a rain date.
