The gala will take you back in time to the 80s and, of course, the need to dance.

The live band will feature the following local musicians: Penny  Wolfe, John Parks, Jason Moser, Mike Foster, Mark Reeves, and Shannon Rounds. These individuals are band members of Jaded Heart and Secret Service. The band will start performing at 9 p.m  

There will be awards given to the best dressed, best dance moves, and more. The recipient of the “Spirit of Main Street” award will also be announced during the event. The “Spirit of Main Street” award is given each year to an individual or group that has gone above and beyond to help carry out the mission of Main Street Batesville.  

The 2022 Winter Gala will feature drinks, hors d’oeuvres, a live and silent auction, a tattoo parlor, and an art show. The art show will feature submissions from the community. Guests to the gala will vote on their favorites during the event. The winners will receive a prize. Among the items for the live auction are a youth four-wheeler and an all-expenses-paid VIP trip to the birthplace of rock n’ roll — Memphis, Tenn.
