Don't miss 'An Appalachian Evening', our summer concert series offering an ever-changing schedule of bluegrass, folk and old-time mountain music by award-winning artists. Ten Saturday evenings Late June - late August.
Each Saturday before 'An Appalachian Evening' concerts, we'll feature a different Stecoah artisan in the Gallery. Be sure to come early to meet the artists and view their work.
From 6 - 7:30 pm, prior to each Saturday performance box dinners are available. Feel free to enjoy your meal in the Cafe, on the deck or anywhere on the grounds. No reservations are needed. The fixed-menu dinners feature smoked chicken with two sides and a biscuit.
Other cafe offerings include BBQ sandwich, hot dogs, Yellow Branch cheese and fruit plate, ice cream, homemade desserts, snacks and assorted drinks.
Prior to each Saturday 'An Appalachian Evening' performance, ten people will have the privilege of enjoying a 5:30 pm private dinner with the band following the band's sound check. Tickets are $35 per person. Show tickets sold separately. Seat cushions are included with purchase.
Tickets must be purchased online or in the Gallery at least three days prior to the Saturday concert, and the ticket receipt must be presented in the Gallery on Saturday before the dinner.
