Naturally inspired

Throughout the small, seemingly quiet communities of the Whiteface Region live artists, dancers, painters, historians, and many other creative individuals make their home in the area.

Live music and dance are hallmarks of the region, whether it's a day-long festival in Wilmington or an intimate concert at the Recovery Lounge.
