Live entertainment from Cary Kanno, Falling Stars, Tank & the Beez, Haus of Polka, DJ D Brice, These Peaches, Lake Side City, Righteous Acoustic Sound Party, The Accidentals, and The Velvet Jimis. Tickets $55, in advance. VIP and the Hop Challenge tickets are only available in advance for $90 and $65. www.sevengenerationsahead.org.
