Nissley Winery is fairly renowned around Central PA for their lawn concert series throughout the summer. This group has never gone to one and I have gotten a ton of requests so here it is!
A band called The SilverHawks will be playing August 9th, they are described as a classic rock, soul and Motown band. All additional information about them, parking, where we will sit, what's available to eat/drink is at the website below.
The concert starts at 7:30 and last until 10 but they recommend that people start arriving anytime after 6. Tickets are available for purchase at the door for $15 - credit cards and out of state checks are not accepted at the admissions tent - i'm planning to bring cash just to be safe. Lastly, if you are going to be later than 7:30, I will have to register you at the Will Call table, I can't wait there and hand you a ticket. please let me know if that will be the case.
They have concessions there but I am thinking that we bring blankets, folding chairs and picnic baskets for ourselves. We cannot bring in any other alcoholic beverages (or "non-alcoholic look alikes"....i'm guessing that's sparkling grape juice??) onto their property but all of their wines will be available for purchase in the wine bar and wine shop. I think it would be fun for us to bring cards/games to play while we are waiting for the concert to start - if you want to bring one, post it as a comment so we can try to avoid duplicates! Additionally we are allowed to bring candles if we want to see after the sun goes down.
We will meet at the entrance of the winery at 6pm so we can get a good place on the lawn for our blankets/chairs. hopefully we have great weather!
