AWARDED #1 FOOD FESTIVAL IN INDIANA BY NATIONAL GEOPRAPHIC!
For those of you that don’t know what a Persimmon is… well, it’s hard to explain. It’s a small, orange fruit. Describing what it tastes like is almost impossible, but the community of Lawrence County has mastered the art of making this strange little fruit taste amazing in so many ways. You will just have to come to the festival to find out for yourself. Try some of the local favorites, such as, persimmon pudding and persimmon ice cream!

ALAN JACKSON TRIBUTE
“The man behind Legend’s Alan Jackson, is a humble soul named Doug Brewin…
Starting in 2004 and continuing to the present, Doug Brewin has been performing as Alan Jackson for the Las Vegas Legends show. Still working with a band of his own, Brewin now rocks the house as both Jackson and himself. Because for him, “being a musician is probably one of the best jobs in the world.” Brewin’s performance of Alan Jackson regularly impresses long time fans of Jackson’s work, but more than that, he leaves a favorable impression of the country music star to people new to his work. ”

“Brutally Handsome is a group that celebrates the best-selling group of the 20th Century, the Eagles! The band is comprised of five veteran musicians dedicated to recreating as closely as possible the music and vocals of the Eagles. From the early years that helped define the California country-rock sound to the later edgier years, and even touching on solo work, these versatile performers can cover the Eagles’ different styles with ease. Their love and enthusiasm for the music of the quintessential American band makes Brutally Handsome a crowd favorite!” – Mitchell Opera House
