Beer, Wine & Food Fest! As the sun goes down, the entire park will light up with a warm autumn glow. Guests are encouraged to stroll through the park to marvel at the majesty of Sycamore Bridge, the serenity of Claudia’s Garden, the lush beauty of Monarch Garden, and the romantic Lakeside Trail. At the Marketplace, guests can gather to sample craft beers, fine wines, and gourmet food and enjoy fun games and crafts for all ages.
In nearby Mission Plaza, live bands will be performing each night. Popular local brother-and-sister duo The Pfeffers will kick off opening weekend (November 3-5), followed by Aubrey and Luke (November 10-12). Modern country band Candie & Eight Second Ride takes the stage November 17-19, and a fourth band (to be announced) will close out the event’s final weekend (November 24-26). Between sets, guests can take a thrilling ride on the Quicksilver Express Mine Coaster, enjoy the views from atop the Panoramic Wheel, or take a ride through the park aboard the Bonfante Railroad.
