Concerts in the Clouds Series

Great Waters, the preeminent provider of entertainment for the New Hampshire Lakes Region, and the Castle Preservation Society have formed an exciting long- term partnership to bring live concerts to the meadow at Castle in the Clouds. This partnership will feature some amazing Great Waters events to be held at this spectacular outdoor venue during the 2021 season and beyond.

This partnership will serve as a way to bring new cultural activity to the historic estate, provide a spacious outdoor venue for Great Waters, and introduce new audiences to both organizations. The 2021 “Concerts in the Clouds” series will be held under a tent overlooking Lake Winnipesaukee and the surrounding area.

“This one of a kind collaboration offers an exciting and new venue for Great Waters audiences, unique to anything available in the New Hampshire Lakes Region, and we look forward to expanding our relationship in the years to come,” said Cheryll Andrews. Charles Clark, Executive Director of Castle in the Clouds says, “This partnership is an exciting opportunity to offer visitors the chance to experience amazing musical performances in one of the most beautiful natural settings in the Lakes Region. Bringing new cultural experiences to the Castle is one of our strategic goals and we’ve found a wonderful partner in Great Waters to do just that.”
