Summer may be drawing to a close, but don't worry - Cedar Creek's annual Drink at the Creek Concert Series is still going strong. They'll continue welcoming amazing musical acts to the Drink at the Creek outdoor stage as the weather cools and leaves turn colors. That's right, concerts will continue through October! If you haven't made it out to one of these events yet because your summer was already too busy, or if you've been avoiding them due to the summer heat, this is your opportunity to experience these fun, outdoor live music events in a gorgeous setting.
There are still several great shows on the schedule this year. All shows take place on the outdoor stage at Cedar Creek Winery, Brew Co and Distillery, located just three miles east of Martinsville on Leonard Road. Each of the remaining shows begin at 5 pm and music continues until 9 pm, with the notable exception of Labor Day Weekend. The Country Rockin' Blues Fest on Sept. 4-5 will feature five bands each day, beginning at 2 pm. Parking is free and overflow parking is available at nearby Hoosier Harvest Church, where a shuttle will be on hand transport you to the Cedar Creek grounds.
Cost is generally $15 in advance or $20 day of show with the exception of shows on Sept. 18, Oct. 9 and Oct. 23, when admission is only $10 per person.
