The annual Anderson Valley Grange Variety show is almost upon us, Fri March 4th and Sat March 6th. This is our 25th year! Time flies when you're having fun, and as Variety show attendees will attest, this show is big fun.
The V-show started back in 1992 as the grand reopening of the rebuilt Grange. When the old Grange burned down there was very little insurance money to rebuild. This turned out to be a blessing in disguise as we found out we had to rely on each other to make a community center. Rednecks and hippies, old farmers and newer farmers, women, men and kids all pitched in. When we finished we had no money to hire a band so we decided to entertain ourselves. We had such a good time we decided to do it again and again and again. So, it's strange to note that if the old Grange would never have burned we never would have had 25 years of wonderful, oddball, revealing local entertainment. We wonder how the valley would be without it.
This year there are no presale tickets. Everyone, performers, staff and audience get tickets. There are a limited number of tickets and anyone with a ticket will get in so come early and meet your neighbors in line, enjoy the tailgate parties, (a rumor that the Teen Center may sell Mexican food in the parking lot).
Tickets are adults $10.00, kids under 12 $5.00
Get ready for a "Really Big Shew." Be There!
