Picnicking Before Concerts

The Series at Lavender Hill Farm is unlike any other music venue you have ever been to. We host concerts in our renovated historic barn, the music genre is always changing, and B.Y.O. Picnicking is part of the experience.

The B.Y.O (Bring Your Own) picnic tradition has been a staple of the concert series since long before it was introduced to Lavender Hill Farm. What was once a pot-luck dinner party with musical entertainment, has evolved into a true Northern Michigan experience. Ticket holding guests of The Series are invited to bring their own food and beverages and relax, socialize, and soak in the beautiful surroundings that is our lavender farm.

On concert nights, picnicking is welcome beginning at 5:30pm. Local Ground outdoor performances are from 6-7pm, theater seating begins at 6pm and main stage shows start at 7:30pm.
