The combination of good wine, great music, and a tranquil vineyard in beautiful Stillwater proved to be quite a rousing success last summer. So much so that the good folks at Rock the Cause are putting on their fourth annual Rock the Vine once again at Saint Croix Vineyards in June, with a host of fantastic bands and delectable food and drink options, all benefiting some truly great causes throughout the Twin Cities area and beyond.
This year's locally focused music lineup is a strong one, with Mark Mallman and his always entertaining antics headlining the event. Roster McCabe, Actual Wolf, the Melismatics, Van Stee, Fathom Lane, Savannah Smith, and Hounds of Finn round out what will surely be a great day of music under the summer sun in Stillwater.
According to the press release, music will only be part of the experience at Rock the Vine. "The event will also feature a nonprofit village showcasing the work of several nonprofits that strengthen our community, through programs that offer education and career training, cultural enrichment, economic literacy, self-esteem through creative expression, and programs that help others to lead healthy productive lives."
Tickets to this 21+ event go on sale Friday, April 26, at noon, and range from $15-$35. Tickets come with many additional perks, including food trucks, a Summit Beer truck, free parking and water, and a Slip-N-Slide for the truly adventurous.
Plus, 100 percent of the net proceeds will benefit community volunteer programs, Rock the Cause community programming, and funding for their nonprofit record label. Summit Brewing, Ticketfly, and St. Croix Vineyards will also be dedicating portions of all sales toward funding and supporting those charitable partners. Each week leading up to Rock the Vine, the Rock the Cause Facebook and Twitter pages will reveal the causes and nonprofits that the event will be supporting, as well as download free music from the performers as well.
