Slow Food Indy: Father’s Day Hoedown & Throwdown

Father’s Day Hoedown & Throwdown
Fried chicken, farm animals, and live bluegrass…what more could your pops ask for?
Sunday, June 21st, at 3pm at Skillington Farms
Here’s the Story

Bring the whole family for a fried chicken picnic and live music at Skillington Farms in Lebanon, Indiana, on Sunday, June 21st at 3pm.

Chris Eley of Goose the Market will be on site, frying chicken fresh from Skillington Farms. Each family should bring a dish to share for the pitch-in picnic to accompany the fried chicken. (Bring your own reusable dining ware, too!)

Enter your dish in the Side Dish Throwdown. A panel of local food experts will judge the entries for originality, use of local ingredients, and, of course, flavor. Three winners will receive a meat sampler from Skillington Farms, Bacon of the Month Club membership from Goose the Market, or a Green Savings Indy coupon book.

Tickets: purchase by June 19th!

Children 12 and younger: FREE
Adults: $14/Slow Food Members $20/non-members
