A long running tradition in Stowe, Vermont, the Music in the Meadow Concert Series is a vistor's and resident's delight.
Stowe Performing Arts had its first concert in Whisker’s field back in 1976this perennial summer series eventually became known as the Music in the Meadow concerts.
To audiences' delight, The Trapp Family Lodge Concert Meadow acts as a natural amphitheatre allowing concert performances to clearly project over the greens. The front half of the meadow is for blankets and low-back chairs and the rest is "picnic-style" on a "first-come, first-served basis".
Please note: The Meadow opens for picnicking 2 hours prior to concert time.
