One of the remarkable things about our county is its support of local businesses. Time and again, our community demonstrates its hometown loyalty. The Local Show is our way of celebrating our local talent, craft beer, and regional food. Last year’s event was a great success, and we’re happy to tell you that on July 28 we will be heading back to Ariel-Foundation Park to kick off another Local Show!

This year’s event will be held in a bigger facility—the Schnormeier Event Center—and will feature singer/songwriter, John Bobo, and the Derek Posey Band! Don’t miss it!
