With focus on popular uptempo country music, they are sure to bring a party wherever they go. Playing from 4:00 to 7:00 on the Main Stage to get us all ready for the Ohio State vs Notre Dame game. Check out more about Redfeather at Home | REDFEATHER (redfeatherband.com).

Join us for the Ohio State vs Notre Dame Game displayed on a large screen near the main stage and broadcast over the stage sound system.

If you aren’t finished with the music side of our party, head under the beer tent from 7:30 – 10:30 and grab some suds while listening to Nashville recording artist Derek Alan.

Playing a wide range of genres, we’re sure you’ll find something you love about this up-and-coming artist rooted right here in Northwest Ohio.

Our lineup of artists is not done… Joining us on Sunday to welcome in our main entertainment from 6:00 to 8:00 under our beer tent where the beer is always cold is none other than another local talent band Trenchant. A cover band that plays all your favorite songs from the 60s all the way to the 2020s and has been gaining momentum across the region. Follow them on Facebook for their latest news or upcoming gigs @ https://www.facebook.com/Trenchant-120258762974851

If you’re still not partied out…which we hope you aren’t…stick around Sunday evening as we welcome one of Ohio’s original and best 80’s tribute bands 1988 back to our stage.

1988 performs the danceable and head banging “big hair” hits of the 80’s. While other groups have chosen to present themselves in a clown-like fashion, 1988 has stayed true to its 80’s roots by paying respectful tribute to bands like Bon Jovi, Def Leppard, Poison, Motley Crue, Guns-N-Roses, and even Journey. 1988 recreates a show one might have seen on Hollywood’s Sunset Strip at the height of the 80’s Metal era.

1988 focuses on pleasing the crowd by playing danceable material without straying too far from the 80’s Hard Rock theme. Of course, the 80’s were known for their “monster ballads”, and there is no shortage of them at a 1988 show. The band plays several of the biggest ones every night. Not to ignore the aficionado, 1988 also throws in the head banging classics by Quiet Riot, Twisted Sister, Europe, Scorpions, and others.  They will be entertaining on stage Sunday from 8:30 to 11:30.  For additional information check out their web page 1988 ROCKS!: Home Page for more details.

Doing our part to ensure your safety, we will be providing free Taxi rides home again this year from 10 pm – 1 am on both nights.  Be sure to check out more information on their websites, Facebook pages, Twitter or Instagram feeds.  More details can be found by clicking on the links below their pictures.

Looking forward to seeing all of you this Labor Day Weekend, Saturday September 3rd and Sunday September 4th!
