STAGES & PROGRAMS

MAIN STAGE

A lot of amazing entertainers have walked across this stage!!!

The stage started out being built on a small hay wagon. When we relocated to Tunbridge we wanted to bring the history of the stage with us so it was transported in pieces and reassembled. As the crowds grew, the wings were added to make a wider viewing area. The weight of the stage was too much for the little old hay wagon so it had to be moved onto a stronger trailer which was a lot higher. We’ll go into more details of the Stage History at a later date.

THE SCHEDULE WILL BE POSTED APRIL 1, 2021

SUGAR HOUSE STAGE

Official Late Night Stage!!!

The Jenny Brook Sugar House Stage is a place to gather as soon as the Main Stage Show shuts down.

Artists from the Main Stage join in and jam with the audience. You never know who will show up at the Sugar House!

Have you ever dreamed of playing music with some of your favorite performers? If so, then Jenny Brook is the place to be!

Great place to make memories!!!

YOGA

Emily Marcus has been a yoga practitioner since 1997 and will be leading the yoga sessions each morning at the Weston Stage with an easily modified, accessible practice that motivates people for their day, and that works out the kinks from sleeping in tents and campers.  She also offers some wrist stretches – for all the pickers.  Modifications for the advanced students will also be available.  She first took her 200-hour teacher training, and has since completed 700 hours of training in Vinyasa, Power Yoga, Yin Yoga, and Restorative Yoga and is also trained in trauma informed yoga.  Emily has attended bluegrass festivals her entire life and understands the challenges of limited sleep due to playing and listening to the late-night jam sessions. Bring your mat and let her help you stretch and relax with the sounds of bluegrass in the background.
