May 18 at Palmdale Amphitheater

The High Desert Beer & Wine Festival will be taking place on Saturday, May 18 at the Palmdale Amphitheater. The Palmdale Amphitheater is located at 2723 Rancho Vista Blvd. 

“This year’s event will be an ‘80s-themed celebration featuring live music samples of craft beers and wines, food trucks, retro lawn games and more,” said Palmdale Mayor Austin Bishop, who serves as the Chair of Visit Palmdale. “It is a terrific opportunity for our community to come together, make new friends and have fun,” he said.

There will be many things for attendees to look forward to, including live performances such as Arena who will deliver a spot-on Duran Duran tribe, Kings of Queen will be channeling the indomitable spirit of Queen, and So Madonna will be recreating the “Queen of Pop’s” most iconic moments. This evening is designed to be a tribute to the era that defined music. There is no dress code, however guests are encouraged to dress in 1980s attire.
