We had so much fun at this event last year. Tough to decide which band stage to sit at, since they were all good. Looking forward to this year!

It was so much fun. CRUSH, the Best of BON JOVI nailed it. I'd see them again. Great call on having them. Thank you.

– Kim Lockington, Attendee, 2016

We enjoyed the food, and the music was great!

I loved the food, the music, the old cars. Everything. I can say that is the best festival that I've been to.
