Arranmore CabCab Concert Series Returns Saturday

Jul 30, 2015 02:29PM ● By Steven Jack

It’s the middle of summer and you know what that means: Dance. Party. This year we’re getting’ down. Way down. We’re gonna give up the funk, shake that groove thing, get up, play that funky music and we won’t stop ‘til you get enough. Get out your platform shoes and your best fuzzy hat…LET'S DANCE!

The Cabernet Cabaret Concert Series is back starting at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 1, and provides an experience like none other in the region. These open-air musical events take place on the expansive lawn of Oswego's Arranmore Farm (34 Rance Road), featuring distinctive themes and an eclectic mix of musical selections. Cabernet Cabaret highlights ArranmoreArts ability to attract and showcase Chicagoland’s most exceptional performers. All Cabernet Cabaret events are offered during summer months.

B.Y.O.P. (Bring Your Own Party) Make it a cocktail party with friends, an intimate dinner for two or just an excuse to get out with neighbors. Bring your own spread of food and drink, chairs and blankets, and choose a spot on our perfectly manicured lawn.
