THE VENUE. Our concerts are held in a 100-year-old Door County music barn, which has been renovated to seat 150 people in our hayloft acoustic area (for solo, duet and trio acts), and 300 in our ground-level big stage area with an additional seating for 200 outside. Both concert areas feature independent state of the art lighting and sound systems, giving our sound and lighting crew the ability to adapt to the stage area, creating a personal setting for performers and audiences alike.
WHEN YOU ARRIVE. Just follow the lighted path from the marked parking area to the concert entrance at the rear of the barn. Paid admission and reserve tickets are collected there. We have covered outside seating with a video projection of the stage and remote speakers to enhance your concert experience. There is also a seating area outside of the covered area for individuals or groups to "tailgate" both prior to and during the concert.
