Acadia Halls Concerts
Each afternoon and evening during the Acadia Trad Festival, our faculty and selected students offer incredible performances you will not see anywhere else. We call these incredible performances Acadia Halls, in honor of the many historical venues in which they are held.
More than 10 Acadia Halls concerts are held during the Festival, both at intimate venues around Mount Desert Island and at modern Gates Auditorium on the College of the Atlantic campus. Performances feature Acadia Trad Festival Faculty, who are all world-class international performers, as well as Festival instructors and Master students who must apply to perform.
