Stone Mountain Arts Center: Is a truly unique experience for live
music. Instead of traditional tavern surroundings and a casual listening experience, Stone Mountain Arts Center is a timber frame hall tucked in the mountains. It hosts national acts like Robert Cray, Los Lobos and Madeleine Peyroux and more. With a year-round calendar of robust musical and comedy acts, Stone Mountain Arts Center is a cultural epicenter in the White Mountains. Purchasing tickets in advance to shows is highly recommended and you can choose to enjoy dinner prior to the show at the Arts Center as well. (Trust us – go for the dinner. It’s just as much a work of art as the performers featured on the stage!)
