2020 Toes In The Grand Summer Festival
June 12 - June 13
The Toes in the Grand Summer Kickoff Festival returns in 2020 to Grove and Wolf Creek Park on Friday and Saturday, June 12th and 13th.
Celebrate summer and our great lake lifestyle in Grove & Grand Lake at Mid-America’s largest FREE Trop Rock festival with great music, food, and fun including the first major fireworks
display of the season here at Grand Lake!
Trop Rock music – think Jimmy Buffet/Margaritaville-style music – is the theme of the festival and a great depiction of our lake lifestyle in Grove and Grand Lake.
This year’s lineup includes The COPA Reefers Band, Something Steel Band, and our headliner, The Beach Cats.
The music will begin Friday with the American Heritage Music Festival and Fiddling Contest and will conclude on Saturday night with our grand finale, the first fireworks show of the summer season here in Grand Lake over Wolf Creek Bay.
Sponsored by Plum Farmaceuticals, the fireworks show is sure to be a “blast” and a great way to wrap-up an incredible weekend of fun and great music!
While there will be some bleacher seating, space will be limited so those attending are encouraged to bring your own lawn chairs.
One of the most popular activities from the first Toes in the Grand Festival was the exciting helicopter rides over Grove & Grand Lake. Great news – we will be having helicopter rides again this year!
Food Trucks and Vendors
In addition to all of the other festival fun, the Toes in the Grand is also a special edition of The Grove Block Party event – located at Wolf Creek Park instead of Downtown Grove and lasting not one but two days!
A wide variety of food trucks will be at the festival both days offering some tasty treats, including festival favorites and everything from barbecue to gourmet hot dogs.
In addition to the food trucks, there will be a good selection of vendors offering their wares at the festival – ranging from home décor items and outdoor furniture to local businesses showcasing the services that they can provide to help you enjoy “Living the Grand life.”
