Grafton’s Music in the Park: Mars Needs Guitars

Weekly on Thursdays through August 20th, enjoy free live music while taking in the majestic scenery of the Mississippi with Grafton’s Music in the Park summer concert series. Make the evening even better with a scrumptious dinner for two at Grafton Winery & Brewhaus beforehand.

This Thursday evening, August 13th, enjoy free live music in a beautiful setting by Mars Needs Guitars, a high-energy classic rock band. Guests are encouraged to bring blankets or lawn chairs, as seating may be limited. The concert begins at 7 pm and will last approximately 2 hours.

Delight in a delicious dinner at Grafton Winery & Brewhaus, just minutes from the park, before the concert. For just $50 (plus tax), enjoy your choice of a small garden salad or Caesar salad, 2 entrees from the restaurant’s Signature Plates, Steak of the Month or Specials, 2 desserts, and a bottle of wine.

Concert-goers are asked to bring a can or dry food donation that will be given to the Grafton Food Pantry.
