Centerstage concerts are July 27, 29, August 1, 3, and 5. Enjoy local food, wine and beer on the grounds before each concert, savor delectable desserts during intermission, and stay afterwards to meet the musicians under the stars.

Free community performances, open rehearsals, youth education programs, art displays, pre-concert presentations and afterglow parties round out a busy 10-day schedule. This year brings a new collaboration with Twispworks, with free performances at their site throughout the summer.
