Woodstock Roots Concert Series at Elm Street Event Green

Main Street Woodstock is pleased to announce the addition of a new concert series during the summer of 2016. Due to ongoing construction of the amphitheater that led to the cancellation of the Summer Concert Series, additional programming has been added throughout downtown this summer. One such program, Woodstock Roots: A Bluegrass Concert Series, will take place the second Thursday of each month from May – August on the Elm Street Arts Village Event Green.
The shows will be free to attend and concertgoers are encouraged to bring their own blankets, chairs, food and beverage. Each show will begin at 7 PM and last until around 9.
“We wanted to continue in the great tradition of live music in Woodstock this summer through a new series of events geared towards a very popular genre of music,” said Mitzi Saxon, downtown program manager for the City. “I think a bluegrass series is the perfect way to celebrate our roots through live original music shows.”

The complete lineup for Woodstock Roots is:
Thursday May 12 – The Tyler Williams Band (Tennessee)
Thursday June 9 – The Sweet Auburn String Band (Atlanta, GA)
Thursday July 14 – Wilson Banjo Company (South Carolina) 7-9pm
Wilson Banjo Company
Thursday August 11 – Jody Hughes Trio (Canton, GA)

The Elm Street Event Green is located on Market Street near its intersection with Elm Street in beautiful Downtown Woodstock. It is home to the Resurgens Orthopaedics Community Stage.

The Top 10 Real Estate Markets to Watch in 2016

#5 Atlanta, GA 


Month after month here at®, we use our data to determine the hottest markets in the U.S.—where home buyers and sellers are the most motivated and active. And as 2015 winds down, we started to wonder: Where are the next red-hot places for real estate?
In spite of the picture above, we don’t actually have a crystal ball here (sadly), but we do have our chief economist, Jonathan Smoke. As part of the 2016 Housing Forecast released on Wednesday, he homed in on the top 10 up-and-coming metropolitan markets in the country.
Smoke and his team took past trends and seasonal variations of housing and economic data for the 100 largest markets in the country and stuck them into a time machine—oops, we mean a statistical model that predicts future values for home sales and prices. Then they identified the markets whose forecasted growth was equal to or better than the U.S. average. The resulting top 10 list is of the real estate markets that look the most bullish for the coming year. Get ready for a few surprises!
Many of the markets that have consistently made our “hot list” because of high demand from buyers and quick sales didn’t make the cut for 2016, because they are predicted to see slower price appreciation and even declining sales. Notably, they include the greater metro areas of San FranciscoDenver, and Dallas.
In addition, each of the markets on the list is in high demand, with 60% more listing page views than the U.S. overall and inventory that sells 16 days faster than the U.S. average. Surging demand in each market can be attributed to growing household formation, a prosperous job market, and low unemployment rates as well as large populations of key demographics. Older millennials (25 to 34 years old), younger Gen Xers (35 to 44 years old), and retirees (65 to 74 years old) will be driving home sales in 2016.
While these top markets have bright prospects in common, their underlying dynamics are different.
“Some markets have been hot and are remaining hot (San Diego, Sacramento, Boston, Atlanta),” Smoke noted. “Some are just now seeing signs of recovery based on substantially better economic conditions forecasted for next year (Providence, New Orleans, Virginia Beach, St. Louis). Some are spillover markets from very hot markets (Providence, Sacramento), and most have one or more key demographic driving demand.”
For the younger set, especially those with families, affordability emerges as key to growth, which favors the markets in the South and Midwest, he added.
Without further ado, here’s our list:

Top 10 Real Estate Markets to Watch in 2016

  1. Providence, RI
  2. St. Louis, MO
  3. San Diego, CA
  4. Sacramento, CA
  5. Atlanta, GA
  6. New Orleans, LA
  7. Memphis, TN
  8. Charlotte, NC
  9. Virginia Beach, VA

Woodstock Passes Ordinance Allowing TO-GO Beverages

Woodstock open container to-go

Downtown Woodstock just got a lot more awesome!
Woodstock passes ordinance allowing alcohol to-go!

The Woodstock city council passed an ordinance creating an Entertainment District that includes the area surrounding Main Street in Downtown Woodstock.  Several beer-friendly businesses are located in the district including Truck & Tap, Freight Kitchen & Tap, Century House Tavern, Salt, and others.  The ordinance took effect Tuesday, March 15, 2016.

Businesses that have a current consumption on premise license and that derive more than 50% of their sales from food can now allow customers to purchase drinks in 16 oz. plastic “to-go” cups.  Businesses are not allowed to set up alcohol sales outside of their business (no beer carts) or allow customers to take beverages off the premises after 12:00 Midnight, current law allows businesses to serve alcohol until 2:00 AM.  The to-go beverages are allowed anywhere within the Entertainment District with the exception of the Park at City Center, schools, churches, daycares, and anywhere that private property owners or tenants don’t allow it.

The ordinance wasn’t without its haters opponents, online petitions and discussions popped up before the vote citing concerns about excessive litter and drunkenness.

This is indeed a glorious day for Woodstock, and therefore, the entire world.
