Worlds of Flavor BBQ and Music Fest in downtown New Albany on August 18.

This just in from Mike Kopp of Develop New Albany.

Mike, a realtor, has been an instrumental in getting downtown New Albany revitalization off the ground, and he has been trying to organize a downtown event on Saturday, August 18.

It goes without saying that NABC beers will be available at the licensed establishments listed below, with the exception of Federal Hill, which yet doesn't have a permit. It isn't clear to me yet whether it will be possible to sell beer at the amphitheater, but stay tuned for further information as planning proceeds.


Just a bit of info as to our event for the 18th of August.

August 18th is the first of what we hope will be an annual event: The Worlds of Flavor BBQ and Music Fest.

Bascially, the event will happen like this: Starts at 5 p.m. at the Amphitheater on the riverfront. We will have three bands playing Ragtime, Latin Style (name to be released) and Blues (The Mudcats). We have invited vendors to participate and sell their product in the downtown area while the event is ongoing. We have asked them to have something that says "Worlds of Flavor."

The restaurants are participating in the following way: Speakeasy will have a India Flavored BBQ, Bistro New Albany will have a Cuban Flavor BBQ, Federal Hill will have a special Italian Flavored BBQ, and Connors Place has invited Rib Tip Tony in his courtyard and will offer a Jamaican Jerk Chicken.

Vendor cost is a mere $10 permit with the Health Dept. I have forms and will send .pdfs to those folks with interest.
