Darke County Center for the Arts’ second annual outdoor summertime event, Barbecue And Blues, will take place on the beautiful grounds of the Greenville Golf Course on Friday, July 22 starting at 6:30 pm.

Music, an integral part of every DCCA fundraiser, will be performed by Michael Locke and the Repeat Offenders, outstanding blues musicians who have played prestigious venues throughout the eastern United States. The band is made possible thanks to generous sponsorship donations by Matt and Angie Arnold, George and Becky Luce, and first-time sponsors Bob and Jean McLear. DCCA Executive Director Julie Strait commented, “We are extremely grateful for the generosity of these local couples who give of their personal finances to support this fundraiser from which proceeds will be used to help bring professional performing artists to Darke County. “DCCA is fortunate to be part of a community where individuals are willing, and often even volunteer, to donate funds that are used to help make Darke County a great place to live,” Strait concluded.

Food and drink will be available to purchase from Hog Wild Bar-B-Que of West Alexandria. On the menu will be ribs, brisket, pulled pork, homemade sides, and other offerings like loaded nachos, walking tacos, iced tea and lemonade. Soft drinks along with alcoholic beverages can be purchased from the Greenville Golf Course.

DCCA invites the community to bring their lawn chairs and blankets, friends and family, and come to the Greenville Golf Course for delicious food, great music, and a good time. Tickets for this family-friendly event are $10 and can be purchased at Readmore’s Hallmark in Greenville or by contacting DCCA at 937-547-0908 or
