The Beef and Barley festival has been around since 1973. Year after year, it was it was one of the highlights of the Thanksgiving weekend as former residents of all ages made a point of coming home and renew old friendships.
As such, many thought of Beef and Barley as our annual reunion of sorts.
Just like so many other events, the annual fall festival fell victim to Covid 19 but they’re not held back any longer. So, the core of the festivals organizing committee is meeting again on Monday, May 9th at 7 p.m. at TinHouse Coffee Co. on Russell’s Main Street and they’d love for you to join them!
