This year’s music line-up features: the Nate Birkey Quintet on Aug. 2, an exuberant tribute band dedicated to the legendary artistry of Miles Davis and Chet Baker; Estaire Godinez on Aug. 9, a sensational vocalist and percussionist who fuses jazz and funk with the sounds and traditions of Latin and Brazilian music; Louie Cruz Beltran on Aug. 16, an extraordinary conguero, timbalero and vocalist who blends Afro-Cuban rhythms with jazz, pop, and R&B; the California Feetwarmers on Aug. 23, a band of entertaining musicians who breathe new life into the old-time sound of Ragtime, swing, and New Orleans jazz.; and on Aug. 30, Brasil Brazil plays popular Brazilian melodies with a variety of vivacious rhythms and explosive sound.

On Aug. 2, The Grilled Cheese Truck offers savory and sweet versions of the classic comfort food, Dogtown Dogs serves hotdogs, an all American favorite, and Chunk-n-Chip sells ice cream sandwiches made from premium, locally sourced ingredients.
