What's Behind the Green Door?

In seeking COVID-safe spaces to expand the series throughout the year, Alive’s CEO Kimberly Goessele turned to friend and farmer, Sylvia Ganier, co-founder and President of Green Door Gourmet. Green Door Gourmet will partner with Alive for a series of fundraisers at their 350-acre farm including concerts and invitation-only tastings. The local, family business is finding new ways to connect to the community as an outdoor venue, and the partnership with Alive is part of this initiative.

Our first Alive & The Bluebird concert at their Grand Barn with Charles Esten sold out quickly, but there is more to come! Check our site for announcements:, and visit for local produce and artisan goods.

We are grateful to The Bluebird Cafe, Green Door Gourmet, and our sponsors:
