Field & Main Returns As Presenting Sponsor Of 30th W.C. Handy Blues & Barbecue Festival
Field & Main is pleased to return as the presenting sponsor of the 30th Annual W.C. Handy Blues & Barbecue Festival set to take place this summer in downtown Henderson.
Red beans and rice, the deep tunes of a saxophone, and java shakes are all set to make their return to Audubon Mill Park Wednesday, June 16th through Saturday, June 19th and the Field & Main team is eager to be involved in making this happen.
The W.C. Handy Blues & Barbecue Festival has grown into a heritage event for the Henderson community and is widely known across the Commonwealth of Kentucky, and beyond. Field & Main has been a festival sponsor since the start of the event 30 years ago.
“Field & Main’s purpose statement is to ‘Build Community,’ and one of our favorite ways to do this is by sponsoring and helping with the W.C. Handy Festival,” said Scott Davis, Chairman & CEO of Field & Main Bank. “Many of our team members look forward to serving Red Beans & Rice on Zydeco Night (Thursday night of the festival) and getting to be part of the revelry and excitement that surrounds this signature community concert. We look forward to being able to re-connect with our neighbors and friends and hear an outstanding line-up of blues musicians.”
From the likes of Kara Grainger to Dwayne Dopsie & The Zydeco Hellraisers to Larkin Poe and Samantha Fish, festival goers are promised a fun filled experience in downtown Henderson.
The festival’s annual Zydeco night is set to take place on Thursday, June 17th and Field & Main team members will be there to serve festival goers the traditional meal of red, beans, and rice.
W.C. Handy Blues & Barbecue Festival organizers are asking that festival attendees follow all applicable guidelines set by the CDC, State, and Local officials while attending the event.
