Bats Beer and Bluegrass

Buy tickets for 2nd Annual Bats Beer & Bluegrass

Bats, Beer & Bluegrass is a unique concert fundraising event for SCCi.  It has something for everyone – outdoor enthusiasts, craft beer lovers, and bluegrass fans! Last year’s event sold out and raised over $20,000 for SCCi’s Stewardship Endowment Fund, which helps us maintain our preserves forever.

This year’s event will be even more exciting than ever – with TWO local bluegrass favorites performing on stage in front of the breathtaking opening to Fricks Cave.

Tickets include dinner from local favorite, Pigeon Mountain Grill, who will be serving up some amazing slow-smoked BBQ, produced with only local, grassfed meat and a smoked portobello option for our vegetarian folks.  Regional craft beer will be sold by the glass.

Event schedule:

4:30PM – Join us for beer happy hour before the show!
5:00PM – Slim Pickins takes the stage.
6:00PM – Dinner is served.
6:30PM – Barefoot Nellie & Co. takes the stage.
Dusk – Bat flight begins (bats willing, of course!)
