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 will soon be expanding with the arrival of a historic barn built in 1792. The barn, which is being transplanted to our campus by the end of Spring 2021, will function as an outdoor stage and gathering place. We hope to continue the life and legacy of this storied structure, which has played an important 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! A new bocce ball court just made its home on The Green for anyone who wants to play. To rent a set of bocce balls, pass your ID to a representative at the desk of Hammerfit and they’ll take care of the rest!
CENTER OF A COMMUNITY
This summer promises to see the return of live music! Our concerts on the green will be pod style shows performed from our new 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!

The Green is a wonderful place to host your community event, activation, or special event! We've worked hard to improve the space to make it perfect for your needs.
Since our calendar is always in flux, be in touch with our team if you'd like to look into hosting your event with us. If our venue is not available on your preferred date, we work with a network of similar spaces and we'll make sure you're taken care of.
We reserve the right to limit venue rentals for any artist who has previously played for The Double E or who may already be on our advanced schedule.
