Country music stars and their fans will fill Doheny State Beach this Veterans Day at the debut Driftwood festival.

Driftwood, but will not only provide music, will also have more than 100 craft breweries and wineries on hand for tastings.

Part of the proceeds will benefit the San Onofre Parks Foundation, a non-profit that works with California State Parks to develop, preserve and enhance the parks, along with the Doheny State Beach Interpretive Association, a local non-profit dedicated to the park’s beaches, facilities, marine refuge and more.

Performers such as Jerrod Niemann, Rodney Atkins, Thompson Square, Parmalee, the White Buffalo and Mariachi El Bronx will be in attendance.

Breweries that will participate include Ballast Point from San Diego, Bottle Logic Brewing from Anaheim, Stone Brewing Company from San Diego and more. Participating wineries include Lberated, Maggio Winnery, Mark West, Rebel Coast, William Hill and more.

Tickets range from $45 to $199. Active and retired military can receive a $50 discounted ticket for early entry admission, and a roundtrip shuttle.

The festival runs on Saturday, Nov. 12, from noon-8 p.m.
