Does the thought of scrumptious food, community fellowship, dancing and great music sound like a winning combination? If so, we want you to grab a couple of friends, bring your favorite lawn chair, and get ready for one of our community’s most spectacular events! 

Join us Downtown Clinton for the 2024 Alive After Five Summer Concert Series. Come listen to live music by some of the hottest bands touring the southeast. Enjoy delicious food and cool beverages and check out all the exhibit booths. You can soak up the afternoon 'til you drop...or just sit back and watch! Either way, it's a great event for the whole family to enjoy...and it's FREE!

Alive After Five is a Summer Concert Series presented by the Sampson Arts Council, City of Clinton and the County of Sampson. The series is made possible through the financial support of many individuals, businesses and corporations.
