O.A.R. – Just Like Paradise Tour

August 18 @ 3:00 pm - 9:30 pm

You will not want to be anywhere else on August 18th, as the release of Winemaker L. Paul Vezzetti’s famous Merlot and Brewmaster Ryan DeLutis’s super Flash Gourd’n Pumpkin Beer take center stage as part of the 6th Annual Release Day. But wait…there’s more!

This year’s release party features O.A.R. – Just Like Paradise Tour with Special Guest Matt Nathanson! This festival will also feature a food truck mash-up, beverage stations throughout the property, and so much more.  Due to the historic amount of rain the region that impacted our property, we have had to completely reconfigure the layout of the show from past year’s in order to have an area on the property that is not saturated and can accommodate the weight of the stage, tour buses and trailers. The only alternative would have been to cancel the show. We were able to reconfigure the layout in a way that will still offer a great experience, but you will need to arrive early, as well as be prepared and well-informed before the event. As such, we added an opening act that begins at 12:15 pm at “Stage 1” prior to entering the Main Festival Area!

We also ask guests to carpool with at least 3 people per vehicle in order to maximize available space in the festival area as we have lost a number of parking spots due to the reconfiguration.Note we will not permit any RV or larger vehicles to park or drive down the property. 

This party is going to be legendary and full of fun memories. Gather your friends and family, pack your blankets and chairs, and lets rock out to the songs everybody knows during THE wine & beer event of the year in Central Pennsylvania!

Event F.A.Q.

Can I bring guests under 21 years old or pets?
No guests under 21 or pets will be admitted.

What can I bring?

You will want to pack lawn chairs or blankets. Umbrellas (except those attached to chairs), canopies, or anything similar that obstructs views will not permitted so as to maximize the view of the stage for attendees. Unlike in past years, guests may not bring any tables or standalone sun umbrellas to the party. Also, while you can bring outside food, you cannot bring in outside beverages (including water & soda). Don’t worry, we’ll have more than enough to quench your thirst! 

What time should I arrive?

Gates open at 12 noon for the Party! We will have 2 stages and festival areas for you to enjoy during the day. The Stage 1 Area will host Not Quite Einstein – our first Merlot Day Band – and a food and beverage area while OAR finishes setting up. No areas beyond the Stage 1 Festival Area and our Event Center are open during this time, but this time will be used to streamline registration, security wrist banding and baggage check. The Stage 1 area will open at 12:00 p and will close at 3:15 p after Not Quite Einstein finishes up! 

So, be sure to arrive at 12 noon to enjoy the Stage 1 Area and ensure a smooth, speedy, entry process. Note that our property is a working farm and does not have multiple points of entry, so it is important to arrive early (and carpool!) so you can park, enter the festival and have a great experience without unnecessary delay.

Can I leave the festival grounds and return later?
There is no reentry to the festival grounds except for medical reasons escorted by security.  There also will be no tailgating permitted.

What food options will be available? 
In the Stage 1 Festival Area, you will enjoy Doghouse Grill.  In the Main Stage Festival Area, you will be able to enjoy Killer BBQ, Dog House, Soul Burrito, Faire Food Express, Sherri’s Crab Cakes, Fireside Pizza, Americana Grille’s Sushi Truck, and Derby Don’s Kettle Corn.

What happens if it rains?
The festival is rain or shine.

Anything else I should know?
We strongly recommend you dress to enjoy a day on our 40-acre farm. As the festival is spread out, please wear appropriate and comfortable walking shoes. We will have a bag check inspection upon arrival, and as a reminder, outside beverages, guests under 21, and detached umbrellas/tables are not permitted. Finally, we do not permit weapons of any kind on the farm.

Tickets are Non-Refundable!
