About APCAL Rock'N Ranch

about us


The ApCal experience is laid-back, relaxed and fun! We treat everyone as if they were our favorite family members. Bring your lawn chair, some snacks, visit a food truck and get a drink and then kick back in the tranquility of the Central Valley farmland countryside … at least until the band starts rockin’! Then put on your dancing shoes and boogie the night away on our 40’ x 40’ dance floor (that’s big enough for bustin’ ALL your favorite moves)!

our Story

ApCal started out as the ApCal Tasting Room and ApCal Winery. ApCal meant “Appellation California,” referring to the origins of the wines we served in our wine tasting room and visitor center. We started out with a humble “Patio Stage” with local bands, then grew to a larger outdoor concert stage featuring big LA and SF tribute bands. When they built a brand new truck stop next to our original ApCal location, we decided it was time to move to even bigger and better digs … literally right around the corner.

Our New Venue

Our new venue is located at 7409 Road 32 in Madera, CA just one exit north of Herndon (the Avenue 7 exit) off Hwy 99.

Our 3 acre facility is one of the largest outdoor concert venues in the Madera and Fresno area. Our concert grounds include a 40’ x 40’ stage, 40’ x 40’ dance floor, picnic-style seating for you and all your friends, plenty of free parking, a state of the art sound and lighting system, a full-service bar serving beer, mixed drinks and wine to our guests 21+ along with fully-serviced outdoor porta potties, overhead misters and nearly 50, 30+ foot tall shade trees.
