There’s no shortage of things to do in Lake Chelan.
Often, visitors to the valley find themselves with days packed to the brim with fun. It can be overwhelming to plan, coordinate, and follow through on all the places and events you want to hit. There may be some that you don’t even know about!
If you’re visiting the Lake Chelan Valley, we highly recommend catching some live music. We’ve compiled some tips and resources to help you find live music around the valley.
Hit the Wineries
Wineries all throughout the valley offer countless opportunities to catch live music. Whether you’re hoping for a relaxing afternoon or a lively night of drinks and dancing, you’re bound to find a show that works for you. If you’re on the North Shore, check out Benson Vineyards, Radiance Winery, WineGirl Wines, Succession Wines, or Lake Chelan Winery. On the South Shore, try Sigillo Cellars, Siren Song Wines, or Mellisoni Vineyards. Looking to stay near your unit downtown? Stroll over to Rocky Pond Winery! Of course, these suggestions are just a nudge in the right direction – there are plenty of other wineries that feature live music throughout the year. And yes, we recommend hitting as many as you can.
Music in the Park
The Historic Downtown Chelan Association, in partnership with other local businesses, sponsors live music on Sundays throughout the summer season. These Music in the Park concerts take place at the Riverwalk Park Pavilion, just across the bridge from your Grandview unit! Bring a blanket, grab a to-go meal from participating businesses, and picnic under the sun while you enjoy some seriously good tunes. You can dip your toes in the water, go for a float, dance in the grass, or simply lie back and soak it all in. It’s a perfect, family-friendly way to spend an afternoon.
Lake Chelan Chamber of Commerce
Many businesses send their music and event schedules to the Lake Chelan Chamber of Commerce website. There’s always an updated calendar, found here, for you to check out.
Through the Chamber of Commerce, you can usually find which wineries or coffee shops are offering live music, who will be playing, and the time! It makes it easy to plan your day or evening accordingly.
Tried and True
Resources like the Chamber of Commerce or winery websites are very helpful for finding live music around the valley. But another helpful hint is knowing which businesses feature live music on a regular basis. These places always have a featured artist or band at a set time. You can count on these venues to deliver a nice evening of live music, no matter what. We recommend The Vogue on Fridays and Saturdays and Campbell’s Veranda on Fridays throughout the year. In the summer months, WineGirl Wines and Benson Vineyards also host regularly scheduled live music.
When you catch live music, you’re experiencing one of the most vital and beloved parts of the Lake Chelan Valley — don’t miss out! Plan to catch a show while you’re here. You won’t regret it.
