Join us for this jam-packed weekend of live music, DJs, dancing, great food, fine wine, fantastic cocktails and a special screening of Step Brothers at historic Avalon Theatre. There’s even a Step Brothers theme party and costume contest. Don’t miss out on all the fun from September 22 – 24. Get your tickets now!
