The Grand Old Stage
In the 1940-1950 era, the auditorium stage became home to musicians touring the mountain area – musicians heard on the "Mid Day Merry Go Round," a popular WNOX-Knoxville radio program.
The Center’s stage has been graced with the top bluegrass performers of that time – Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs, Bill Monroe, The Carter Family, Chet Atkins, Bonnie Lou and Buster, Archie Campbell, Carl Story, Elmer Jethro, Martha Carson and the Brewster Brothers.
It seems these musicians charged little or nothing for admission and put on a great show to a full house! Today’s performers follow in the footsteps of these great musicians and the smaller footprints of the many school children that have performed on this stage as well.
The Cafe is open from 6 - 7:30 pm, prior to each Saturday performance. New this year, The Hub is providing a boxed meal on Saturday nights prior to the concerts. Choose from BBQ chicken, brisket and pork plates with sides. The café will be serving desserts, ice cream, drinks and our famous cinnamon rolls.
Feel free to enjoy your meal in the Cafe, on the deck or anywhere on the grounds. No reservations are needed.
