Music on the Porch

In celebration of the Cortez Grand Ole Opry and the rich musical heritage in Cortez, FMM hosts monthly Music on the Porch events. We feature a number of diverse musicians. Guests are invited to come listen to the music, or bring instruments and join in! When the weather is nice, this event takes place on the porch of the historic Burton Store, but it moves inside during the summer months. This free event is held on the second Saturday of each month from 2-5 pm.
