It's Sandpoint's biggest party of the year, with fun up to here!

Our 37th Annual Lost in the '50s features terrific musical acts both Friday and Saturday for our concert and dances. Don't miss the car parade on Friday, and the car show Saturday throughout the streets of downtown Sandpoint.

And you're gonna wanna dance. The Bonner County Fairgrounds at 4203 N. Boyer Ave. is again this year the venue for back-to-back dance concerts on Friday and Saturday nights. And our bands are sterling! We're talking massive hit-makers ... just check 'em out!

    On Friday, May 17, the hit-making machine known as Gary Lewis and the Playboys will light up the stage and dance floor - and of course, our yearly faves, Rocky and the Rollers. On Saturday, May 18, it's a pair of legendary vocalists, Peter Rivera and Mitch Ryder, plus Rocky and the Rollers. Read more below, or click right now for details in our Dance Show program.
