Hopkinsville's historic Alhambra Theatre was once again the place to be as the Grammy award-winning SteelDrivers took the stage at the 5th annual Hoptown Holiday Hopfest.
The Pennyroyal Arts Council (PAC) led a major renovation effort involving a second-story lobby expansion and additional performance space, which was completed in 2018 just in time for the 90th birthday of the beloved landmark.
PAC's Executive Director Margaret Prim welcomed 650 guests to Hopfest, and she shared her thoughts on the evening.
“We had a really grand reopening of the Alhambra Theatre,” Prim said. “This was our 5th annual Hopfest, which is a fundraiser for this facility. We were hoping to open a couple of weeks ago, but we got a little delayed, so we kicked off a week of celebration with a very special performance by the SteelDrivers."
“Our opening act was the Todd County Boys from just down the road in Elkton, Kentucky. We were really excited to have the opportunity to get them on our stage as well.”
The event was presented by Hand Family Companies/Budweiser of Hopkinsville and sponsored by many local businesses, including Atmos Energy, and Heritage Bank.
