The second annual Galena Fall Gathering on the Square is set for Oct. 14.
After a rockin’ great start in 2022, co-founder Jamie Stevens says the second edition of the Gathering will be bigger and better than the original.
“We are so stoked for this year’s event,” Jamie said. “We had such a great turnout for the 2022 event. We’ve got incredible events lined up for this year and we’re expecting an even bigger turnout. And, yes, we know that Ohio State is playing Purdue in football that day, and we will have a giant screen at the Gathering so that none of our loyal Buckeye fans will miss any of the action.”
This year’s musical entertainment will include AG Angelo, the Famous Johnson Brothers and headliner North to Nashville.
The festivities will kick off at 11 a.m. Attendees can enjoy A Taste of Big Walnut as local restaurants will put their culinary talents on display around the Sunbury Square. There also will be beer and wine for sale. Local vendors will have their wares on display and there will be a 50/50 raffle and a Queen of Hearts game.
The Gathering also will include an exotic car show provided by Germain Land Rover and Jaguar and a kid zone on the front lawn of the Journey Fellowship Church.
“We try to keep in my mind that at the heart of our event is the fact that we’re doing this to benefit the village of Galena’s all-inclusive playground and the Buckeye Cruise for Cancer to support the Ohio State Comprehensive Cancer Center – Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute,” Jamie said. “All the money we raise goes to two very worthy causes.” For more information, visit: www.galenafallgathering.com.
