At Carnegie Hall is the second album by The Weavers. The concert was recorded live at Carnegie Hall in New York City on Christmas Eve 1955. At the time the concert was a come-back for the group following the inclusion of the group on the entertainment industry blacklist. It peaked at number 24 on the Billboard Top 200.

This album represents the first half of that landmark Carnegie Hall concert. A recording of the concert's second half was also released as an album, entitled "The Weavers on Tour".
