The first Seymour Fall Festival featuring bands, beer and barbecue will take place at Chateau de Pique Winery on Saturday.
From 2 to 10 p.m., festival-goers can kick back to the music of six local acts, including Brent James and Contraband, Blind Ambition, Don Pedigo, Buckner and Crane Fettig, Public Option and 812, all while enjoying food provided by KS BBQ and drinks from Bartholomew County Beverage and Chateau de Pique winery.
Admission is $10 and proceeds from the event will benefit Girls Inc. of Jackson County in Seymour. Tickets are available at the winery, 6361 N. County Road 760E. The event is being organized by Seymour Police Officer Jerry Polly.
“I tried to do it last year as a downtown festival, but it didn’t work out,” Polly said. “So I decided to try it somewhere else.”
Brenda Tracy, director of Girls Inc., said the event is not an official fundraiser for the agency, but she is happy to see anyone in the community step up to assist the agency with it’s mission.
