There is live entertainment for the whole family throughout the event including musical and variety acts on the main stage, as well as various stage and strolling entertainment on the grounds. The feature headliners for each night on the main stage are:

Friday, Sept. 1 at 7:30 p.m. – Mogollon

Sunday, Sept. 3 at 8 p.m. – Grupo Control
