True to our ‘Live Music Capital Of the World’ title, the Fan Fest is has a solid schedule of bands including Andy Grammer, Berlin, Los Lonely Boys, Everlast, Roger Creager, Civil Twilight, and many more.

The Fan Fest has much more than just music planned. There will be an interactive maze, driver appearances, trivia games, cooking demos, a go-cart challenge, race simulators, a zip line, an inflatable rock wall and much more.

On Friday and Saturday they’ll also have a Silent Disco. If you’re not familiar with this concept, a silent disco is a huge dance party where everyone is wearing wireless headphones. You can turn the volume as loud or as soft as you want, and you don’t have to scream to talk to your friends (just take your headphones off)!  It’s actually even more fun than my description entails; imagine a bunch of people dancing in silence. This event is 21 and up, and $19 if you buy in advance ($25 at the door).
