Shakori Hills Community Arts Center’s mission is to provide culturally significant arts, music and sustainability education and outreach to our local community and schools, while preserving the greenspace of its 72-acre Chatham County homestead.
Most famous for the Shakori Hills Music Festival held every spring and fall, it has much of the infrastructure needed to support and sustain a community arts center. There is a permanent stage, a well-kept barn (known as the Coffee Barn), campgrounds, the Nonagon, ticket booth, security booth, parking gate booth, three concession stands, nice gravel roads, a shower house, a new permanent bathroom structure, a general store, deep-well drinking-water, and a whole lot of beauty.
On-site and adjacent parking will accommodate approximately 2,000 passenger vehicles. Campsites will accommodate approximately 500 campsites and vehicle parking spaces.
