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.
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.
Your group (25 or more) can attend 'An Appalachian Evening' concert at special group rates for dinner and admission. Contact the Center for group rates.
