On July 16 Allisonville Nursery will host its third annual Evening in the Garden – Brews, Blues and BBQ event. The fun begins at 6:30 p.m.
“It’s our signature summer event. We use it to celebrate our favorite parts of summer. It’s become an annual tradition now,” said Scott Bardash, marketing manager.
The event is free to attend and is a chance for the community to hang out in the nursery with good food, brews and music.
“The food is provided by Kincaid’s Meat Market located at 56th and Illinois. They bring BBQ and they provide that for our guests for free,” said Bardash.
Kincaid’s will be serving bratwurst from Usinger’s Sausage.
“In the summertime bratwurst are so fun and easy. It’s just quick and easy to eat. The quality of Usinger’s is second to none,” said Dave Rollins, owner of Kincaid’s.
Sun King provides their ice cold, fresh local beer. Wine will be available as well. Guests should bring cash to purchase alcoholic beverages.
“It’s just a fun time to come out to the nursery for free and just hang out. Listen to some music and have some beer,” said Bradash.
C.W. and the Working Class Band, a local Indianapolis band formed in 2007, will provide live blues and rock ‘n’ roll music for guests to enjoy.
Wyliepalooza food truck will be on hand to dish out their super premium ice cream to help guests cool down.
Each year attendance has increased and is expected to do so again this year.
“The first year we had around 200 and last year we had about 300,” said Bardash
The event is unique in that guests can roam the gardens while enjoying their food and brews.
“We have five acres we can use a lot of that outside space. It’s already so beautifully decorated just because of all the plant materials,” said Bardash.
Guests will be directed where to park upon arrival at the nursery.
