We’re starting an ongoing spotlight on local talent and we can’t think of a better way to start out than with two very popular music groups, The Stable Shakers and The Hello Strangers! Usually playing at local pubs, here’s your chance to hear them without all of the noise and commotion associated with those venues. Adults can slake their thirsts with beverages from local craft beer and winemakers and for youth, our concessions stand will be open at this family-friendly night of fabulous, locally grown music!
