As if supporting 137 local schools, organizations, and charities wasn't enough incentive to visit the 102nd Annual West Side Nut Club Fall Festival, we have decided to really embrace the foods along Franklin Street. And by embrace, I mean participating in daily Funky Food Games with Ron Rhodes from WEHT on Lifestyles.


Funky Food Games 2023

Join us all week at the Westside Nut Club Fall Festival along with Ron Rhodes for Funky Food Games. This exciting event is brought to you by Main Street Food + Beverage in Downtown Evansville.

I relate the Funky Food Games with giving birth. At the time, you think there is no way that I will ever do this again. Then a year passes and you completely forget how your body felt after a week of cider chugging and other crazy challenges.
