The crunch of leaves underfoot, pumpkins ripening in the fields, and the Annual Hometown Hoe-Down are surely signs of fall, and this year the Hoe-Down will be a little earlier! Geauga County Tourism will host their 4th Annual Hometown Hoe-Down on Saturday, September 29 from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. at the Middlefield Market Pavilion (indoors.) The Hoe-Down is the perfect fall evening in the country and features a great country buffet, square dancing demonstration by the Broken Wheels, music by Fort Huntsburg Band, dancing, live pie auction, the ‘Cow Plop Drop’, and a few new surprises! Dinner will be served from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m., and the Burton-Middlefield Rotary will once again be serving up beer and soft drinks at the “Brew Saloon.”
“This is our big fundraiser,” said Lynda Nemeth, Director of Geauga County Tourism. “The money we raise at this event goes directly back into marketing Geauga County to visitors. This helps all of our area businesses from restaurants to lodging to retail stores and increases the economy of our county as a whole.”
The Hoe-Down provides a great return on investment to benefit our county while having a fun night out, so please round up your friends and join the fun! Mark your calendars, or reserve your tickets now.
Tickets are $20 per person ($10 for kids 4-11) and available NOW at the Geauga Co. Tourism office or can be purchased by phone with a credit card.
