About
Now in our fourth season, this live music venue offers the finest in national, regional, and local music talent throughout the summer and fall. A gracious, historic barn, Vinegar Hill is an intimate venue that provides entertainers with a superlative, vibrant setting to showcase their talents. Featuring a variety of genres, like cabaret, classical, rock, folk, and blues, Vinegar Hill Music Theatre resides in the former Arundel Barn Playhouse, a timber barn known as the Smith Sister’s Farm. Located in an area of Kennebunkport’s Arundel, historically known as Vinegar Hill, the venue’s name honors that history. When attending one of our performances, arrive early to enjoy the charming outdoor garden area and one of our signature classic cocktails from the rustic Garden Bar. Social seating and twinkling globe lights create a relaxing setting and help set the tone for an evening of incredible entertainment.

Another one of Maine's Barn Style Musical Theatres
Aug 2019
Went to see a comedic act which was ok. The seats are all joined together so if you have someone who figgits a lot near you, you all get to figgit alone with them whether you want to or not!
I have seen two other musical groups there and found that sense the seats are all on a flat floor, not sloped like most theaters, it is difficult to see and hear the groups.

Last year we went to a concert here; this year we saw a comedienne. The space is absolutely fabulous no matter who's performing.

A lovely venue in Maine
Aug 2019
What a lovely venue! I went here to a Maine mystery writers' panel. The building is beautifully redone. The acoustics seemed good. The staff was very nice. Ticket prices are reasonable and they seem to have a good selection of musical acts, talks, movies and the like. It's a great place to take in an event if you are in the area.

Great place for an evening of entertainment
Jul 2019
My wife and I went to Vinegar Hill July 10th to the event supporting the Center for Grieving Children. The event included hors d'oeuvres from a local caterer and entertainment by The CIE House band. Having never been to Vinegar Hill before we were intrigued. Good reviews and a desire to get out and mingle got us to take action and get tickets. We were glad we did. Evening started out in the garden with a cash bar and included hors d'oeuvres. An excellent variety made its way around the garden as well as at a central station. One consideration is that since its evening and a garden I would recommend some bug spray. We picked up a few mosquito bites but that did not detract from our enjoyment of the evening. At about 8pm the doors to the concert venue opened and we snagged a couple of seats at a cocktail table. I picked us up a couple of the featured blueberry lemonade cocktail that was just perfect for the evening. The barn is air conditioned and has great seats, they all have a great view of the stage. The show started with a comedian, local to Maine but can’t remember his name. Then the CIEE House Band came on and played a great set of covers that really got the crowd rockin’. A wonderful event and for a good cause. The barn has a bar in it too so you can’t help but enjoy yourself at Vinegar Hill. We are in Maine every summer and will be making return visits every year.

Another awesome evening at Vinegar Hill
Jul 2019 • Friends
Had friends visiting from CA and we all enjoyed a wonderful, fun evening at Vinegar Hill. Saw The Doo Wop Project and they were fun, engaging and so gifted.
The offerings for Summer, 2019 are WOW- great talent, amazing entertainment and something for everyone.
This is Vinegar Hill’s 4th Season and the Garden Patio and all the gardens looked amazing- beautiful and inviting. Love the new sculptures throughout the grounds from Maine Art Gallery. As always,staff was friendly and helpful.
We will be back soon, and if you haven’t booked a visit for this Summer- “What are you waiting for???”
We are so lucky to have amazing entertainment in our neighborhood.

Rustic rocks the VHMT!
Jun 2019 • Couples
Came to town to see Rustic Overtones at Vinegar Hill Music Theater. I love the band but also love unique music venues and this place didn't disappoint. Certainly worth the almost 5 hour trip. The grounds are beautiful and the venue is incredible. What an amazing place to see a show. The staff was friendly. Make sure you keep your cup. If you don't bring your cup back to the bar you have to buy a new one ($3 if I remember correctly). I can't wait to come back again.

New music find
Jun 2019 • Friends
Went toVinegar Hill to see a Prince tribute band and had a great time. I have had I with typical venues around Boston that charge you 100+ and treat you like cattle 🐄. Vinegar hill is in a beautiful barn structure with exposed framing. Acoustic were excellent and there were tables to st when watching the performance. They have free parking, a bar off the performance space and the staff could not be nicer.
Great time without the hassle.

Culture in Maine

It appears they strive to bring excellent talent to Maine. The old building has been lovingly restored and the grounds are pleasant. The several shows we've seen have been enjoyable. We will definitely return.

John Mueller’s Winter Dance Party
Sep 2018 • Friends
Great show! Lots of energy coming off the stage. Ray Anthony as Ritchie Valens was absolutely fantastic. John Mueller as Buddy Holly is amazing. Linwood Sasser as the Big Bopper was good too. Vinegar Hill is a beautiful, intimate venue! Love the outdoor patio and bar. Plenty of parking.

The”The Band” band
Sep 2018 • Couples
Tribute band of “the Band”. First time at this venue. We had a great time! We enjoyed the garden bar before the concert. Staff were friendly and helpful. The concert hall is a converted barn that was cozy and inviting. Super clean, and decent acoustics. We hope to go there again soon.
