  1. Dan says

    3rd year in a row we will be there for Dennis DeYoung. He puts on an Amazing show! :-)

  2. Ashley says

    Wish I could be there for Jo Dee Messina. They don’t usually have any country music and I really enjoy hers.

  3. Ken Herron says

    Several years ago Blake Shelton appeared. I tried and tried to get my daughter to go. Now she regrets not going.

  4. Paul says

    Sister Hazel is a favorite of ours, but we won’t be there that week this time. Overall, it’s a great lineup. I also like that there are performances every day, in contrast to F&G festival when performances are weekends only.

  5. Kyliw says

    Ahh, @Ashley, we’ll be there for Jo Dee Messina and I was thinking it’s too bad b/c she’s literally the only one that that list whom we’ve never heard of/have no interest in seeing!

  6. Shannon says

    David Cook! David Cook!

    He’s a fantastic live performer… I already know of several people coming from around the country, and even from overseas, to see his shows. HIGHLY recommended, if you’re on the fence! :)

  7. Kasey says

    I have wanted to see Hanson since I was like 10 years old. I will FINALLY get to see them and it was purely chance!! It’s like it was meant to be!!!!! :)

  8. Lori says

    My Husband and I have gone to see 38 Special for the last 4 years, it is an awesome show and recommend anyone that is going to check them out.

  9. Michelle says

    Wish I kept my original trip dates. If I only knew jo dee mesina would be there. Not liking the rest of the lineup. Mostly has beens. More up and country artists should play.

  10. jennifer says

    Boyz II Men are excellent…had front row last year for their first performance. I planned my trip to see them. I have seen Los Lonely Boys at another private venue…they opened for Sheryl Crow at a conference and brought down the house. I will be there in October when they are performing….cant wait to see them again.

  11. Cinderdeb says

    Wow, this is the first year we are going to try Christmastime to visit. We love food and wine festival! I am so bummed! Dennis De Young was one of the best concerts we have seen there, There are three shows per night…he is the only one we went to all three, and he played new music at each….great show! Teenage kids also liked it.

  12. Barb Williams says

    Love Night Ranger, 38 Special, Dennis DeYoung, just might have to attend all three!

  13. Barb Williams says

    Oops, forgot to mention Starship with Mickey Thomas and Rick Springfield. Wow, hard to pick which nights to attend. usually go with a big group, so we need to plan it.

  14. says

    Joe – The Turtles are at the Flower and Garden Festival or the Summer Concerts, not the Food and Wine Festival I think.

  15. Jeni says

    Pointer Sisters were incredible! Every concert had a different opening song and great variety of songs. They really give it their all. Air Supply and Big Bad VooDoo Daddy are other annual favorites. I hope TBA is replaced by Go-Gos, really loved them last year, and I’ve never heard of TBA ;)
