What is Stage Too! ???

Stage Too! is our second performance stage, in a shady area of the campground. On this stage we feature talented regional performers, as well as national acts looking to perform in a more intimate setting.

Stage Too! has been graced by The Infamous Stringdusters, Crooked Still, The Kruger Brothers, The Parkington Sisters, The Boxcars, and Frank Fairfield, just to name a few! 

And don't forget Stage Too Midnight, featuring wild and zany special guests, like Joyce Andersen's wild electric fiddle Jimmy Hendrix show, or non-musical events like 2013's midnight film screening And don't forget Beatles for Breakfast on Saturday where anyone with a Beatles cover can light up the morning stage!
