Pops At the Post 2019 — Railway Edition
By Bill Bucher, Executive Director, Salisbury Symphony
Saturday, June 1
SPENCER — Fellow Symphony fans, here’s all you need to know about our annual outdoor musical celebration: the 2019 pops concert will be held at the North Carolina Transportation Museum in Spencer.
It’s very different this year, so pay attention to the timing details to save the most money!
As always, this event is free and open to the public. However, because the Transportation Museum is a state property, the Transportation Museum is required to charge parking and entrance fees for visitors entering the parking lot OR the Back Shop building until 3 p.m.
So you can avoid all unnecessary charges by arriving at the parking lot AFTER 3 p.m. and plan to enter the back shop only after they stop charging admission at 3 p.m. There is no charge for attending the Pops event; only for arriving early while the Museum is still charging admission.
Tailgaters: Note change to earlier announcement: Tailgate spaces are $49.37 each; Reservations for tailgating spots WILL be accepted through online reservations. Pre-purchase tailgating spots at www.eventbrite.com/e/pops-at-the-post-tailgating-railway-edition-tickets-62059922900
Food and drink vendors will be on the premises. Alcoholic beverages are prohibited on state property.
So here are the relevant times:
3 p.m. — Tailgate check-in begins (If you arrive before 3 p.m. you be allowed to enter but will have to pay the Museum parking fee of $5. Parking fee waived after 3 p.m.
3 p.m. — Back shop opens to all guests for free admission
5 p.m. —Salisbury Swing Band begins performance inside the Back Shop building
7:30 p.m. — Salisbury Symphony performance begins inside the Back Shop

Good luck, and hope to see all of you there at the Back Shop.
