Bands on the Blackwater Fall 2022 Schedule

BOTB-Fall-2022-InWeekly-Half-Horizontal

Bands on the Blackwater is a free outdoor concert series held Friday nights from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM at Jernigan’s Landing in downtown Milton, Florida.  Jernigan’s Landing is located at 5154 Willing Street, Milton on the west bank of the Blackwater River.  Come by boat or bring a lawn chair and join your friends and neighbors for the best live music on the Gulf Coast at our award-winning, family-friendly concerts.


There are two series annually – Spring (April – June) and Fall (September – October).  For the complete schedule, please check our Facebook Page (@BandsOnTheBlackwater).  


As an outdoor event, the concerts are subject to weather.  We will make every effort to present each show as scheduled, including minor delays, but the safety of the public is our primary concern.  Notices of cancellations will be made via our marketing sponsors and on our Facebook Page as soon as possible.  In the event of bad weather after a show starts, we will evaluate the situation and make a determination in the interest of safety for all.  In the event of lightning within a 5-mile radius of the show, we will take a 20-minute safety break and reassess.  Any additional lightning strikes will start a new 20-minute clock.  Please listen to and follow all safety instructions provided on the stage.
