Heights Summerfest 2018

Join us as we kick-off the annual Summerfest series with Heights Summerfest. This free family-friendly event features fun for the whole family including an artisan market, microbrew garden, food trucks and live entertainment from local and national acts.

National Headliner – Squirrel Nut Zippers
The Squirrel Nut Zippers began their musical journey in Chapel Hill, North Carolina in the mid-1990s. Between 1995 and 2000 the Squirrel Nut Zippers sold over three million albums. Their watershed album, Hot was recorded with the heated influence of New Orleans, fueled by a smoldering mix of libations and a youthful hunger to unlock the secrets of old world jazz. The band has mixed genres of Kelzmer, Blues, Americana and random bits of contemporary music to create their signature style. Audiences are sure to enjoy this band’s outlandish antics as the make a joyful racket at this year’s Heights Summerfest. Be sure to update your eardrums with their twelve new original songs on their Beasts of Burgundy album, releasing March 23rd of this year.
