Chaute Ste. Michelle Winery

Here are over a dozen Things to do Around the Eastside this summer at Chateau Ste. Michelle 2010 Summer Concert Series. The winery in Woodinville has just released the schedule for this annual summer series and it is going to be a great year.

Concerts are held on the lawn at Chateau Ste. Michelle Amphitheater SUNSHINE or rain. They offer both Reserved Seating directly in front of the stage (chairs provided) or General Admission Seating on the lawn (BYOC – bring your own chair.) A selection of Chateau Ste. Michelle wines and a variety of fresh food items from selected northwest vendors is available for purchase in the Amphitheater at each performance. Feel free to bring your own picnic and non-alcoholic beverages.

Here is a list of performances for the 2010 Season:

June 19th Steve Martin & The Steep Canyon Rangers
July 14th Steve Miller Band

It is a very impressive lineup and tickets will sell out fast for most of the shows. Tickets go on sale April 23, 2010 from Ticketmaster. Make your plans today to attend at least 1 of these shows.

If you can find a way to score a VIP Pass (which I have no idea how to do) be sure to check out the desert tent and let me know what it’s like. I have heard pretty good stuff about that tent.
