Get lunch tickets now
This Friday is your last day to purchase tickets for the RiverFest Kickoff Community Luncheon that will open the annual festival this year.
The event, at noon Friday, Sept. 23 in the meeting hall of First United Methodist Church, is a chance to add impetus to the literary tradition of RiverFest. The RiverFest Literary Committee is reviving and upgrading the lunch that for years marked the opening of the festival. No lunch was held last year.
During the lunch, awards will be presented to the winners of he annual William Faulkner Literary Competition. The competition includes best short story and best one-act play in adult categories and best short story by a high school student.
Keynote speaker for the luncheon is Robert Hicks of Franklin, Tenn., author of the New York Times bestselling books “A Separate Country” and “Widow of the South.”
Tickets are only $10 and include a full buffet lunch provided by Tallahatchie Gourmet. Reserved tables with eight seats can be purchased for $80 for those businesses and organizations that want to show their support for the event.
Tickets may be purchased at the Union County Heritage Museum on Cleveland Street or the Union County Development Association next door to BNA Bank on Bankhead Street.
The Kickoff Community Luncheon is an opportunity to boost Tallahatchie RiverFest as a significant regional event and not just a local festival.
Make sure you get your tickets this week because no tickets will be sold at the door. We look forward to seeing you at the kickoff event.
