NEWBURGH, Ind. (WEHT)- Throughout October, Showplace Entertainment Center in Newburgh hosted an Octoberfest to raise over $5,800 for 21 local non-profits who missed out on crucial funds after the Fall Festival was canceled due to COVID-19.

We know how much the Fall Festival means to these organizations throughout the Tri-State area and we wanted to try to help however we could

Showplace says it wanted to help local non-profits earn some of the money they typically earn during the Fall Festival. Despite the Fall Festival’s cancellation, some local foundations still put up booths across the area to raise money for their efforts.
