Steel cut, blackened and peppered, rock-hopped hip-dipped cock-eyed funk-trunked flat-on-your-back pants-off-dance-off machine.

Connect with friends and family at our weekly Great Garden Escapes. Music has the
power to bring people together and we think that’s worth celebrating. Each week we
will be featuring either Great Garden Escape classics, or exciting new bands we hope
you will love as much as we do! Local restaurants, breweries, and wineries will be
onsite to help make for an entertaining night that’s both relaxing and fun!

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.
