The Double E Performance Center has been presenting events on The Green of The Essex Experience since 2018. Typically the center of community events during the warmer months, The Green's capabilities have expanded with the arrival of a historic barn originally built in 1796. The barn, which was transplanted to our campus in Spring 2021, functions as an outdoor stage and gathering place. We hope to continue the life and legacy of this storied structure, which has played an early role in Vermont’s history and will continue to do so in the music community.
When events are advertised on The Green, you can expect them to take place entirely on The Green, to spill over into the parking lot at times, and, occasionally, to take the entire parking lot over. The Green has become an even more special place to us in the last year, as it has allowed The Double E to continue to host live music, entertainment, and community events while in observance of social distancing guidelines.
When The Green is not set up for an event, it’s open to you! Grab a bite from any of our on-campus partners and then picnic out on the lawn – who knows, maybe someone will be playing guitar in the gazebo!
CENTER OF A COMMUNITY
We're proud to present outdoor concerts on a stage constructed from the skeleton of a barn originally constructed in 1796, down the road in Charlotte. The Palmer barn was destined for demolition, but now lives a second life as the main stage!
2020 WAS THE FIRST YEAR WE HOSTED A FULL SERIES OUTDOORS. GRAZIN ON THE GRASS WAS OUR FIRST POD STYLE CONCERT SERIES EVER TOO!
