Surrounded by the unforgettable jewel tones of a Kansas summer sunset, guests will be drawn to the white peaked tents and the aroma of a well-mastered selection of Flint Hills inspired delicacies inviting the senses to partake in the breathtaking experience of fine dining on the charming bridge.
To celebrate the 11th Anniversary of this iconic event, the Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce a cocktail hour performance by Annie Wilson and the Tallgrass Express String Band. The Chamber has also added an additional hour to the after dinner concert featuring Savanna Chestnut.

The two-hour concert featuring Savanna Chestnut will begin at 8pm., bringing a new, yet traditional sound to the table. Chestnut writes her songs for, and about the folks that still love true country music.
Aileen James of queensofcountry.net describes Chestnut as “honest, quirky and country.”
Raised in the boondocks of Kansas, Chestnut is a Country music singer/songwriter whose music reflects her roots. Growing up in a small farm town, Chestnut developed a love for the sweet, twangy sounds of old school country music, and that is exactly what she aims to bring back to the modern country scene.

In 2016, Chestnut won the Nolensville Songwriter Showcase judged by Gretchen Wilson and Trent Tomlinson. Her music has received air time on local radio stations around the country and she continues to reach new audiences and gain new fans.
