Since 1974, First Encounter has been a premiere venue on Cape Cod for the enjoyment of live acoustic music of all kinds; including blues, traditional and contemporary folk, bluegrass, gospel and more. We are a non-profit organization staffed completely by volunteers. Concerts are held twice each month throughout the year. First Encounter provides a rare opportunity to listen to a variety of fine music in a smoke and alcohol free environment. We offer home-baked treats and hot and cold beverages. Children are welcome and admitted free, so it’s a great place to go as a family.

Here at our website you can find a schedule of our upcoming concerts, information on mailings and memberships and directions so you can find us.
