Music in the Meadow

Music in the Meadow has been a long standing tradition in Stowe and attracts many residents and visitors. Produced by Stowe Performing Arts, the first concerts were held in Whisker’s Field on Mountain Road in 1976 and, at the suggestion of Johannes von Trapp, the concerts were moved to the meadow at Trapp Family Lodge in the early 1980s, where they’ve continued every summer since.

The Trapp Family Lodge concert meadow acts as a natural amphitheater, allowing concert performances to clearly project over the green and the gently sloping lawn provides a venue of unparalleled beauty and comfort. The meadow opens two hours in advance of concerts, and seating is picnic-style on a first come, first served basis. There are designated, well-marked areas for blankets, low-back chairs and high-back chairs. These areas reflect our seating policy to guarantee each concert-attendee a view of the stage as well as the rolling hills of the Nebraska Valley. Ushers will be happy to help you find a great seat.

In case of inclement weather, Music in the Meadow concerts will be held at the Stowe High School. Regretfully, there is no picnicking inside the rain site.
