Tunes & Tastings Summer Concerts

Summer Concert Series | Every Friday, Aug. 7 – Sept. 4 | Garden Green

Do you miss concerts as much as we do? Good news – our past concert series has inspired this new Tunes & Tastings summer concert series!

This is an intimate summer concert series, happening on the Garden Green (instead of the amphitheater, like our past series) and featuring regional acts, food, alcoholic beverages and tastings from local wineries and breweries.

Based on current guidelines, we will be limiting attendance. Learn more about our COVID-19 procedures at the bottom of this page.

See you in the Garden! 🎶

What's the difference between Tunes & Tastings and the past concert series in the Garden?

We are excited for summer concerts to return to the Garden! We have used our concert series from 10 years ago as inspiration for our new Tunes & Tastings format. This concert series is on the Garden Green and not in the Amphitheater, like our past concert series. These shows will be more intimate, featuring regional performers and scaled-back production value.

Due to COVID-19, the capacity is 225 people – which means you’ll be close to the stage. This also means tickets will sell fast, so get yours quickly!

Are outside food and drinks allowed?

No outside food or drinks allowed. However, we encourage you to purchase a dinner + admission ticket that includes a pulled pork sandwich, coleslaw, baked beans and watermelon (vegetarian and GF alternative available). This ticket is the first admission time. Arrive early, get prime seating and enjoy dinner in the Garden before the concert starts!

There will also be a bar serving wine, beer, cider and spiked seltzer.

Are there benefits to Tunes & Tastings for Garden Members?

Yes – Garden Members receive $1 off General Admission tickets and free parking ($5 value). Please have your membership card ready when arriving at the Parking Booth and Admissions.

Do I need to purchase a ticket for my baby or small child?

Yes. Since all people, including babies, count in the maximum number of people that can gather due to COVID-19, attendees of all ages will need to purchase a ticket.

I want to purchase a dinner ticket for myself but not for my child. Do they need a dinner ticket?

Children 12 & under who aren’t eating dinner and have a General Admission ticket can accompany their parents at whatever time their parent’s entry time is.
