The headlining act is "The Voice" winner Sundance Head, who will be rocking the stage on Friday night. Younger visitors can enjoy the museum exhibits, carnival rides, midway or KidZone children's area.

But the biggest attractions are the craft brew events. Adult brew lovers will have an opportunity to sample different more than 50 different craft beers, cask tappings and limited releases. The brew masters will even be available to chat with people as they give live demonstrations all weekend long.
