Dust off your lawn chair. The Peace Center kicks off its White Claw Concerts on Friday, April 14.

This year’s series — taking place at the Peace Pavilion— features seven performances spanning genres like beach music, soul, pop, and reggae.

Before you put on your dancing shoes, here are a few tips and what to expect.

How to attend

Whether you want to be front and center to the Peace Pavilion stage or prefer to dance in the back, you’ve got options, including General Admission (think: lawn seating) and Genevieve’s balcony — pricing varies per show.

Bonus: VIP packages can be added on to either ticket option and could include early entry, photos with the band, a pre-show concert, and more.

What to bring

Get comfortable. Grab a blanket, folding chair, or seat cushion for the lawn and bring a personal water bottle to stay hydrated.

Be sure to leave professional cameras and recording devices, dogs (excluding service dogs), and means of smoking at home.

What to eat and drink

Outside food and drink (besides your water bottle) are not allowed, but a variety of drink options like soft drinks, beer, wine, and White Claw Hard Seltzer (of course), plus snacks can be purchased at the Wyche pavilion.

Wristbands for those drinking alcohol are $1.
