Need a recipe for a perfect summer evening?
- Start with a vineyard setting in Lake Erie Wine Country.
- Just add wine, free outdoor live music, and free parking.
- Suggested add-ins: bring a picnic blanket or camp chairs.
- Directions: enjoy the evening!
Whether a date night or a night out with friends, outdoor summer concerts in Lake Erie Wine Country are fun and easy. The only rule is don’t bring your own beverages. Of course, you can buy beer, wine, and non-alcoholic drinks on the premises. I think that’s a nice way to thank the winery owners for the awesome event!

If you want to catch dinner prior to the concert, Noosa, The Cork 1794, Freeport Restaurant & Tavern, Johnny B’s and Michael’s Italian Restaurant & Pizzeria are all convenient to both Arundel Cellars and Penn Shore Winery & Vineyards.
But, don’t forget… the food trucks and on site catering at Penn Shore concerts which begin at 5pm will be a fun way to enjoy dinner at the winery.
Special Night Out — Birthday or Anniversary?
If you want to be all fancy AND have a designated driver, you could kick it up a notch and arrive by limousine. My guests have had good experiences with Barnes Limo.
It’s not too late to start thinking about plans for 2018. Watch for spring concerts at Lakeview Wine Cellars.
So, which concerts will you add to your calendar?
