Otey’s Tavern in Crestline Village is preparing for its fourth annual Otey’s Fest on July 14. The gates open at 5 p.m. in Otey’s parking lot in Crestline Village. The event benefits the UAB Comprehensive Cancer Center.
“It began a few years ago with trying to find a way for Otey’s to help a local charity or foundation, to involve the community, and have fun while doing it,” Otey’s Tavern owner Will Haver said. “The reaction to Otey’s Fest the past few years has been fantastic, and we are beyond grateful for that.”
Like in years past, the event will feature live music from local bands. The Hurlers will play at 5 p.m.; Eliot Morris will play at 6:30 p.m.; Secondhand Jive will play at 8:30 p.m.; and Rollin’ in the Hay will play at 10 p.m.
They will also have a moon walk, dunking booth and corn hole tournament for family fun. Hot dogs and hamburgers will be grilled outside. A two-dollar beer tent and liquor tent will also be available.
Children 13 and under get in for free. For 13 and up, it’s $20 per ticket in advance or $25 on the day of the festival. Tickets can be purchased at Otey’s Tavern or online at www.oteystavern.com.
