End of Summer Hopyard BBQ at GearHouse Brewing Co

Saturday August 27th, 2022 * 5:00 PM
Hey party people! We’ve got our August event planned for you!
The end of summer is approaching before we know it!
As sad as this makes us, we want to have one last summer get together with you all for the season to celebrate what a great summer it’s been and all the good times that are ahead in the remainder of the year.
Our BBQ will feature a limited menu, special cocktails, grilled burgers and dogs, smoked pork, delicious sides, yard games, and live music from Nick Staver Trio.
This event is dog friendly; we highly encourage you bring your pooches out to celebrate the end of summer with you!
Seating is limited in the Hopyard, so we also highly encourage bringing a back-up blanket or lawn chair.
We can’t wait get in one last relaxing, kicked-back hang with you all before it starts to get too chilly.
See you there!

This year is our 31st Institute annual jazz festival—featuring 7-time Grammy Award winner, Afro Latin Jazz master Arturo O’Farrill
With a fabulous new location, the jazz festival continues to spotlight top professional artists each year that light up the outdoor stage with hot summer jazz.

This year’s concert features the Arturo O’Farrill Afro Latin Jazz Quintet, with Arturo O’Farrill (piano), Adam O’Farrill (trumpet), Zack O’Farrill (drums), Liany Mateo (bass), and Victor Pablo (percussion).
The quintet has toured and performed at jazz festivals and clubs around the world.
Pianist and composer Arturo O’Farrill is the winner of seven Grammy Awards. Born in Mexico, O’Farrill grew up in New York City, and began his professional career with jazz greats like Dizzy Gillespie, Lester Bowie, Wynton Marsalis, Harry Belafonte (where he served a music director), and other jazz luminaries.
In 2007, he founded the Afro Latin Jazz Alliance as a nonprofit organization dedicated to the performance, education, and preservation of Afro Latin music.
Parking is available on the property.
Those attending are encouraged to bring lawn chairs and blankets, and picnics are welcome.
