The smell of fried food is in the air on the west side of Evansville. Fabled as the “second largest street festival next to Mardi Gras,” the 98th West Side Nut Club Fall Festival is underway this week on Franklin Street. Many area organizations are working extremely hard during this week to raise funds for their groups by selling some of the yummiest food around. For some groups, this is their largest fundraiser of the year.
Among those groups are several band booster clubs raising money for their marching band programs.
- Mater Dei Marching Wildcats – Booth 90
- Bosse Marching Bulldogs – Booth 91
- Central Marching Band – Booth 112
- Harrison Instrumental Music – Booth 52
- Reitz Instrumental Music – Booth 58
- North Green Brigade Marching Band – Booth 68
A couple of members of our team sampled some of what these organizations had to offer. Each one had food and/or drink items that were extremely delicious and well worth the money spent. Below we have provided a review of each booth’s top item, along with a listing of their menu and prices.
DRUMS on the OHIO is happy to support all of the area marching band programs and their booster clubs. We hope our fans will also show their support by sampling some of the great food and drinks these organizations have to offer at this year’s festival.
To see the locations of all of these booths on Franklin Street, be sure to download your copy of the 2019 Nut Club Fall Festival Munchie Map.
