Off Stage

Welcome to Spruce Peak Arts Off Stage!

We turn to the arts to get through difficult times and Spruce Peak Arts is working creatively to re-imagine our event and outreach activities to reach you where you are.  Please join us!

1. Drive by Concert Series– Kicking off Summer with a Drive by Concert Series! taking music to the streets… As designated downtowns are carefully coming alive with the welcoming breeze of Summer air to Vermont, the Arts Center is turning off the computer screen and taking local musicians to the streets.

The first drive by Concert in partnership with the Town of Morrisville will take place on Saturday, June 20 from 7:00pm-8:30pm featuring local favorite Chad Hollister. Other locations in the planning stages are Waterbury Center on June 27, and one is in the works for the Hyde Park – Johnson area.

Series Sponsor: Bourne’s Energy
