Seven O'Clock Rock Series

Fall 2014 Series

Seven O'Clock Rocks   Seven O'Clock Rocks 2

Take time to strut your stuff on the streets of Cary Downtown! Back for its third year, our block party experience in downtown Cary will find the streets closed off, merchants open late, good music and food and the opportunity to gather and enjoy great music with your friends and neighbors. Free dance lessons offered prior to the concert starting! Performances held at the corner of Academy and Chatham Streets in Downtown Cary. All Seven O'Clock Rock events are FREE!

The Seven O’Clock Rock Series is excited to have Carolina Ballroom of Cary as our 2014 Fall Sponsor! Their dance instructors will be teaching our pre-concert free dance lessons and providing a fun dance sampling in the concert’s music style during our 10-minute intermission at each concert this season.
