Come back home to Clarion for fine foods, and wonderful locally produced beer!

Come Celebrate!!!

Come Celebrate!!!

It’s been 50 years since the Beatles appeared on the Ed Sullivan show and changed America overnight! Enjoy the nostalgia of the Beatle’s musical brilliance with this superb Beatles Tribute Band.

Emlenton’s Crawford Center (511 Hill Street) will see the likes of John, Paul, George and Ringo on stage at 7:00 PM on Saturday, November 1st. Well..not really, but close enough to have you believing that you might be in the audience of the Ed Sullivan Show in 1964, when the Fab Four made their US television debut. This will prove to be an affordably priced family night of fun and if you’re of the proper age, you may have to explain to your children how this English band took America and then the world, by storm.

Call to Reserve: 724 659-3153
Adults $15, Students $8 in advance; At the door $20 for Adults and $10 for Students
