When it’s summertime in Vermont, that can only mean one thing: music. While Stowe may be best-known for being a sporty resort town, the town’s artistic spirit comes alive every summer with events such as Art on Park. However, at the heart of Stowe’s arts community lies another event that brings beautiful music to the masses, all against the background of a gorgeous Vermont summer. We are talking, of course, about Music in the Meadow.

Historic Property

Set at the famous and historic Trapp Family Lodge, Music in the Meadow brings various musical acts to the meadow. The event has been held at the Trapp Family Lodge, of Sound of Music fame, since the early 1980s, and it was actually at the suggestion of one of the Trapp family members that the event took place there, to begin with.

Guests who come to Music in the Meadow in Stowe are invited to bring their own lawn chairs, blankets, or garden chairs—whatever will make them the most comfortable—so they can sit back and enjoy the music. Festival grounds open two hours before the music begins, which gives visitors ample time to stake out their spot for the show. VIP seating is also reserved for those who have made a financial donation exceeding five hundred dollars to Stowe Performing Arts. All guests are invited to bring their own picnic lunch.

Music in the Meadow Has a Variety of Music

Some of the musical offerings that Music in the Meadow attracts includes symphony music, jazz, and more. Many of the concerts organized for the event are free. Whether it be the beautiful music, the beautiful scenery, or both, Music in the Meadow attracts many onlookers from both locally and beyond.

A Great Place to Visit

If you’re planning a visit to Stowe to see a show at Music in the Meadow, there are plenty of other activities that are offered during the summer season. Although it may logically be the off-season for this ski resort town, Stowe does not turn into a sleepy shell of its wintry self during the summer months. On the contrary, there are plenty of activities to do in Stowe, from the Brewers Festival to the 7 Miles of Sales to Art on Park and more.
