Local Events

Only 28 miles northeast of Tallahassee, the city of Monticello is graced by historic buildings, including a circa-1890 opera house still in use today. A courthouse square dominates the center of compact Monticello, surrounded by family-owned cafés and shops, and spectacular live oak canopies, draped with Spanish moss. Saturdays are particularly special as area farmers and ranchers – corn, peanuts, cotton, dairy, cattle, etc. – still come to Monticello to shop and socialize. Oh, and there is this: Those curious about the supernatural are advised to make a stop in Monticello, named by ABC-TV as the "Most Haunted Small Town in the U.S."

Monticello has all of the charm of a small town with beautiful natural surroundings, historic homes, and lots of shops and restaurants to explore. We hope that you will spend some time in Monticello exploring our community during your visit to the Opera House!
