Hickstock is a music festival that gives back.

This Saturday, musicians from Spencer and surrounding counties will converge on the stage at the fairgrounds for a day mixed with kicking back and kicking your heels up.

While patrons and participants are having a good time, the gate admission will be used to help bring joy to the lives of other. All proceeds from Hickstock will be split between the Spcncer County Sheriff’s Department’s Shop With a Cop and the arts program at Spencer County schools.

Organizers have billed the event as something the whole family can enjoy – from bluegrass to rock to school choirs.

“We will have music for all walks of life,” said Karen Spencer.

Ten bands have volunteered their time and talents to bring a variety of music. Of the 10, seven are returning acts from last year, said Spencer.

The cost of admission is $5 for adults and $3 for children ages 11-18. Children 10 and under are admitted free. Music enthusiasts will also enjoy vendor booths and karaoke. Gates open at 12 p.m. and the last act will take the stage at 9 p.m. Guests are encouraged to bring blankets and lawn chairs.
