Business Description

Founded by the producers of the McDowell Mountain Music Festival, The Compound exists to provide the same result: participation in the areas of community, culture and charity. It's a public venue where culturally informed, like-minded souls go to witness the collaboration of live music and great food on a regular basis. Our concept includes Southwest "fresh" selections, with the majority of our ingredients incorporating a local first, farm-to-table, organic philosophy.
