On the Market Stage

The Market Stage sits at the south end of the Food Court. Though it's outdoors, we use it rain or shine! There is a generous canopy over the stage and another over the audience, and some seating is provided. There's also room for dancing, which is always encouraged! There is a special kid friendly set each Saturday at 11:00 AM, and a longer set of dance music at 3:30PM. The rest of it is all variety all the time - local and regional musicians and community groups bring their folk, blues, rock, jazz, Brazilian, African, choral, Balkan, and/or classical music and things between and beyond for your entertainment.
