We do not charge for any of our music gatherings, as this is not a commercial facility/event. Our special performance musicians do appreciate donations (much like a house concert) to help cover their expenses. "Pass the hat" or a "tip jar" is the norm.
We have two stages, the Outdoor Amphitheater Stage for main events and our smaller indoor "Hangar Stage" for afternoon concerts.
