History On The Rocks — A New Signature Event in Yesteryear Village

Boca Raton, FL — A new, rockin’ signature event will be unfolding soon at Yesteryear Village at the South Florida Fairgrounds. The public is invited to experience “History on the Rocks,” presented by Glade & Grove Supply, from 6-9 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 15.

A food and spirits tasting experience, guests will be invited to sample light bites and specially concocted beverages while they visit Yesteryear Village’s historic buildings. Guests also may indulge in locally brewed beer, Florida wine and other specialty cocktails and mocktails while gathering around wood-burning fire pits staged for roasting s’mores.

Among the participating food and beverage vendors are Voice Chocolate, Lost Harbour Spirits, Florida Dairy Farmers, Pinders Seafood, WrapOlé, Brown Distributing, Chef Jeffrey Schissel with Everything Bacon, and Chef John Carlino with Original Cider Donuts. More are being added each day for each of the 14 locally-based food and beverage locations in the Village.

“We are hoping that the public will embrace this event as much as they do our annual fair,” said the fair’s President & CEO Vicki Chouris. “It’s an opportunity to explore Yesteryear Village while having a great time with family and friends.”

Reggie Ellison will greet guests with his soothing saxophone sounds and the event also will showcase 176 Keys’ traveling dueling pianos show, “Fun Pianos,” presented by Storm Tight Windows. In addition, there will be an on-site MarketPlace featuring locally produced and sourced spirits, foods, jams and jellies along with fresh cut flowers. There also will be live animals, wood branding, and specialty drinks, including one made by the Village’s blacksmith that includes a “rusty” nail as a drink stirrer!

General Admission is $35 in advance, $40 at the gate. A special Designated Driver ticket is just $15 in advance and $20 at the gate (and does not include access to any alcoholic drinks). VIP tables of 10 may be reserved for $350 and VIP ticket holders may be admitted at 5:30 p.m. A commemorative glass is included with each ticket purchase. Tickets are on sale online now at
