There are no events in the months of December, January, or February, because Dyer Observatory is closed.
Bluebird on the Mountain
This concert series presented with the world famous Bluebird Cafe is scheduled around glorious sunsets on the portico of the Vanderbilt Dyer Observatory.
Tickets for individual concerts are available the first day of the prior month of each show (i.e. the May 18 tickets will be available April 1) at NOON. Each ticket will admit one carload with a maximum of 8 passengers. All guests on a ticket must arrive together in a single car. Please note that tickets sell out extremely quickly.
Please see our Bluebird on the Mountain web page for more information.
