What do architect Buckminster Fuller, poet Rodney Jones, and singer Shawn Colvin have in common? All three spent formative years in the intellectual, innovative, and creative powerhouse known as Carbondale.

Buzzing with creative energy, Carbondale thrives with lively venues, renovated theaters and a young, eclectic crop of musicians, churning out everything from bluegrass to punkabilly. On any given night visitors can choose between an intimate acoustic set, heavy-based DJ, or a renowned orchestra’s interpretation of Bach.

Did we mention that there’s often no entry fee? More reason to dive deep into Carbondale history, catch a performance at one of our historic theaters, or view the work of local and national artists.
