When the West Side Nut Clubbers decided to try having a half-pot in 2019, they were hoping to simply break even. Turns out, Evansville loves a good half-pot; The winner that first year took home $600,000 after taxes. Local nonprofits also earned $600,000.

Even though the West Side Nut Club Fall Festival was canceled in 2020 because of COVID, the half-pot was a great way to raise money for local charities. $1.4 million dollars was split between the winner and Evansville charities.

To recap:

2019 = $1.2 million
2020 = $1.4 million

The food booths are back on Franklin Street, and the half-pot booths are staying busy. It's looking like we will hit $300,000 by Noon Wednesday, October 6, 2021.

How high will the West Side Nut Club Fall Festival Half-Pot go in 2021?

This could be the year that it hits $2 million. If that happens, local charities will get a huge boost, and someone will be a millionaire!
