We are feeling nostalgic. This 1950's/60's/70's recreation of a Drive-in Diner is an immersive pop-up experience that transports you back into time. Come get served in your car by our 'carhop' roller skate servers. Don't have a car? We have picnic tables you can reserve. DJ's will be spinning & mixing all the fun classics: funk, soul, disco + more. Tune into your car radio, they will be able to play right on your car stereo.

Milkshakes, Hotdogs, + Fries - OH MY.

We will be an outdoor extravaganza. Equipped with a bar sponsored by Hop City Brewery. We will have market vendors selling vintage clothes, wares and handmade, artisinal goods.
