The site navigation utilizes arrow, enter, escape, and space bar key commands. Left and right arrows move across top level links and expand / close menus in sub levels. Up and Down arrows will open main level menus and toggle through sub tier links. Enter and space open menus and escape closes them as well. Tab will move on to the next part of the site rather than go through menu items.

Event Details

Please note: Wearing a mask is recommended for those who are not fully vaccinated. 

Join us for an evening of music, a campfire and the potential to see some shooting stars. We have the Southern Delta Aquariids, Alpha Capricornids fireballs and the popular Perseids to look forward to seeing light up the night sky. Bring your own beverages and instruments, and let’s jam.

For those bringing alcoholic beverages, please bring beer and wine only. Musicians of all skill levels are welcome, and everyone is invited to lead or just sit back and enjoy the atmosphere. Bring your own blanket or camping chair for sitting around the fire.
