The Keene Music Festival, in collaboration with Keene Parks and Rec, and Southwestern Community Services presents a series of concerts at the Sumner Knight Chapel in Woodlawn Cemetery to help raise money to renovate the chapel. This amazing little venue features music in its natural form. Little to no amplification or sound equipment is used during the show; though on occasion folks do use electric instruments. It's music just as it's always meant to be. Admission for this special event is by donation of around $20 or so. All profits go towards renovation and preservation of the Sumner-Knight Chapel.
This is a family friendly event that we hope you'll be a part of. You can also get a discount by bringing a canned good to donate to the local food pantry ($1 per can for up to three cans; though you can pay it forward for someone else).
