The British Invasion was a mid-1960s phenomenon, when rock acts from the United Kingdom became sensations in the United States. This year marks the 50th anniversary of the beginning of the musical invasion that inspired a generation and helped define rock and roll.

The tribute pays homage to the great bands of the '60s through their timeless music. Saturdays performers include performers include the acoustic Twist and Shout band and The British Invasion Tribute show.

Classic songs from iconic British groups such as The Zombies, The Moody Blues, Dave Clark Five, the Rolling stones and Herman’s Hermits will be performed, followed by the American musical response and finally a salute to the band that defined the British invasion, the Beatles.

Wine tastings, hard cider, and fruit brandies as well as food, and soft drinks will be available all weekend at the winery. Attendees are encouraged to bring chairs, and blankets. Outside food and beverages are prohibited.
