Music on the Square Celebrates Ten Years

Arts Group of the Year: The preparation for the Smithsonian Institutes “New Harmonies” traveling exhibition that featured four events in 2008 will see ten years of existence this coming year thanks to the Hardeman County Music Commission and the Bolivar Downtown Development Corporation.
Four acts agreed to do the first year for free: SmallShack, The 10-O-C Band, Brian Lee Howell as Elvis and Billy Kennedy.
The following year featured 24 weeks of music ending with the first Hardeman County Music Festival in October.
Music on the Square begins in late April and runs until mid-October, featuring local and regional artists at the Bolivar Downtown Amphitheatre.
