Make the Hermitage your spot for local music, food, and art this summer! Join us every other Thursday May 10 through August 16 for our outdoor concert series.

Relax on the shoreline and hear live music from several of the region’s most talented bands. Enjoy drinks from our bar featuring craft beer and wine and grab dinner from a variety of food vendors including our premier food truck, Bro's Fish Tacos. Our summer exhibit, PROOF, will be on view during the concerts through July 22.
