Fabulous Chancellors – Great Garden Escape

Date(s) - Thu 28 Aug
6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Idaho Botanical Garden

Thursday, August 28
6:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.
Band: Fabulous Chancellors

Winery: Split Rail

Let the good times rock ‘n’ roll with this band keepin’ the memories alive playing music from the 50s, 60s, and 70s.

Wine spawned from whimsy, driven by the soil that you stand upon, and conceptualized from the mindset that we all like what we like, not what we’re told to like.

Enjoying  live music in the Garden on summer nights has become a local tradition. Great Garden Escape is every Thursday evening, June through September and features upbeat dancing music and friends.

Bring your own low back chairs or blanket.  Picnic baskets are welcome or  guests can purchase  selections from the on-site food and beverage vendors.
