Ivy Terrace concerts are a community favorite and a big reason why Lewisburg, West Virginia, is considered one of the “coolest small towns in America.” The groups perform outside on Carnegie Hall’s Ivy Terrace as attendees watch from the expansive lawn in front of New River Community and Technical College. Concertgoers are encouraged to bring a lawn chair or blanket and pack a picnic to enjoy the live, outdoor concerts. All Ivy Terrace concerts are sponsored by City National Bank and free and open to the public. This is an alcohol free event.
Concerts may be canceled due to inclement weather, so Follow and Like Carnegie Hall’s Facebook page for updates.
