Gavin Degraw's Saturday night performance illuminates the festival's growth. It's come a long way from the first edition in a tent in the Robinson's May parking lot on Labor Day weekend in 2011. This year was a four-day weekend event with names like Scott Conant, Thomas Keller, Susan Feniger and a full festival atmosphere.
