2021 Season Update

All of us at Vinegar Hill Music Theatre have missed you.  We’ve missed live music and gathering as a community.  Since our closure last March, we’ve been longing to bring music and connection back to our community in a safe way.  We are thrilled to announce that we finally feel that we are in position to do so!  This 2021 season, Vinegar Hill will emerge from forced hibernation with great new programming and practices designed to ensure your safety and health – plus bring you the incredible experiences you love!  

New! Outdoor Programing for 2021

Drive-Up Concerts & Movies

We’ve added a 16′ x 20′ outdoor stage to our parking lot for rain or shine Outdoor Concerts and Drive-Up Movies. 

Summer concerts are the best and we’ve booked incredible acts like folk legends Aztec Two-Step 2.0, jam band Neighbor, singer-songwriter Dar Williams, local favorite Rustic Overtones and more! Bring your chairs and blankets to get extra close to our stage and savor outdoor entertainment at its best!

Drive-Up Movie Nights will feature summer classics like Grease, The Breakfast Club, and Dirty Dancing.

Pre-order concessions and car hop service are also available for all outdoor events!

Expanded Sunday Chill at the Hill and Maker’s Market

Join us on Sundays, July 11th through August 29th, and enjoy afternoon cocktail specials, live music, food trucks, and a new Farmer’s and Makers’ Market. Your’e welcome to bring your own blankets or chairs to relax and get comfortable. The whole family can savor their Sunday at Chill at the Hill!

Follow us on social media for weekly music, food truck, vendors and rain updates.

Vinegar Hill is Committed to the Safety of Our Guests and Team

Our first concern is the safety of all our guests and staff. We welcome fully vaccinated guests to attend events and do not require that masks be worn by those that are.

*Air conditioning system features newly installed HEPA filters. We will be employing a number of strategies designed to increase ventilation in accordance with CDC guidelines. We have  added air purifiers to restrooms and other highly trafficked areas of the property. Hand Sanitizer Stations are provided at all entrances, exits, concessions, and various marked areas in the barn.*

We have pledged ourselves to the KPT Promise, a campaign devised by our community business leaders in order to uphold the highest possible safety standards. We are also adhering to the guidance put forth by Keep Maine Healthy, as well as the Association for Performing Arts Professionals

We ask that people who have any Covid-19 symptoms refrain from visiting the theatre. We thank you for your cooperation in keeping our community healthy as we begin gathering together again at Vinegar Hill.
