Every year, the Jones House invites musicians who played with Doc and who are inspired by his work to the lawn to perform at the annual Doc Watson Day Celebration. This free concert is dedicated to his memory.
On Friday, June 24th, 2011, a life-sized bronze statue of Doc was unveiled in downtown Boone, on the corner of W. King St. and N. Depot St. On that day, the Town of Boone decreed the third Friday in June as Doc Watson Day.
