Entry Description
Listen to live music, taste bourbon and wine, and enjoy great food, all for a good cause, at the annual Rock the Rocks event at Falls of the Ohio State Park, Sept. 27.

The event is sponsored by The Falls of the Ohio Foundation. Proceeds benefit the group’s educational initiatives.

The Falls of the Ohio Foundation helps preserve and interpret the scientific, historical and cultural heritage of the Falls of the Ohio and promotes educational initiatives.

Rock the Rocks runs from 6 to 10 p.m. at the Falls of the Ohio State Park Interpretive Center in Clarksville.

This year’s theme is “It’s Hammer Time!” and celebrates the start of construction on new exhibits at the interpretive center in November as part of the foundation’s Crossroads Campaign for New Exhibits.

“This will be our last Rock the Rocks featuring the current exhibits and we plan to go out with a bang,” said Diane Swank, foundation president.

The event will feature live music with Jamey Aebersold Jazz at 6 p.m., followed by the Old School Band at 7 p.m., a construction-themed dinner by Terri Lynn’s Catering, a bourbon tasting by Jim Beam Brands Company, handcrafted beers from New Albanian Brewing Company, a wine tasting by Old 502 Winery, a silent and live auction, fossil bed walk, bird watching, and viewing of the interpretive center exhibits.

The dress is casual or themed (“MC Hammer-ish” or construction attire).

Tickets are $75 in advance and $100 the day of the event. Tickets are available at fallsoftheohio.org/Rock_the_Rocks.html or by calling (812) 283-4999.

Free overflow parking with shuttle service will be offered at the Clarksville Aquatic Center.
