Stecoah's "An Appalachia Evening" concerts are currently postponed. Please check back for a possible live-streamed virtual concert season later this year.

Where is Stecoah?

The Center is housed in a renovated schoolhouse in the tiny village of Stecoah, North Carolina in the scenic Western North Carolina mountains.

Stecoah is about a half-hour west of Bryson City via US-74 West and NC-28 North – roughly midway between Bryson City and Fontana Dam.

We're also about 15 minutes north of Robbinsville via NC-143 and NC-28 South.
