You always know spring is in the air when Chateau Ste. Michelle starts selling tickets to its amazing Summer Concert Series. This year’s lineup of renowned musicians continues the annual tradition of excellence experienced by concert-goers.
We have gone every year, and tickets to many of the concerts sell out quickly. So believe us when we say run, don’t walk, to get your tickets at the wine shop at Chateau Ste. Michelle in Woodinville or through Ticketmaster. Tickets go on sale Saturday, March 28 at 10 a.m.
The 2015 lineup offers 25 concerts — pop, jazz, rock and blues — from June 13 through September 12 at the beautiful winery’s amphitheatre: Garrison Keillor, Smash Mouth, Toad the Wet Sprocket, Tonic, Chicago, Gregg Allman, Sheryl Crow, Lyle Lovett & His Large Band, Harry Connick, Jr., John Fogerty, Chris Botti, Bob James, Earl Klugh, Morgan James, Taj Mahal, Blind Boys of Alabama, Charlie Musselwhite, Doug MacLeod, Jackson Browne, Brit Floyd, Steve Miller Band, Michael Franti & Spearhead, Chris Isaak, Gipsy Kings, Randy Newman, Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons and Mark Knopfler.
For details, have a look at the concert calendar; you can also find answers to any you might have about how to prepare for, and what to expect from, a concert outdoors.
All shows feature general festival seating on the lawn, as well as reserved seating. And as a special bonus, the wine shop is open so you can purchase wine and picnic items to enjoy during the concert. You can also bring your own picnic baskets and non-alcoholic beverages.
So what are you waiting for? It’s a wonderful way to spend a lazy summer evening of music and wine in a beautiful location.
In addition, net proceeds help fund Chateau Ste. Michelle’s charitable contributions program, which supports a broad range of non-profit organizations.
