Tip-Your-Talent showcases local performers

Tip-Your-Talent is back and it’s better than ever! It will be held at 6 p.m. Thursday, March 19 at Alexandria’s as part of Downtown Findlay’s Third Thursday. Tip-Your-Talent is a free showcase of local performers where audience members cast their ballots for the people’s choice award by tipping their favorite performers. All proceeds will benefit The Arts Partnership’s arts education programs.  

This year’s lineup will feature garage-rock band The Ragoons, comedian Eddie Michaels, and musicians Erica Bickhart, Gabbi Calvert, Fash Lavender, Nick Nowlan, Aaron Peterson, and James Adkins.

 Radio personalities Big Dave and Big Kauhuna will serve as emcees. The judge’s choice award for the best performance will be chosen by celebrity judges Mayor Lydia Mihalik, music educator Tim Mattis, and Judge Reg Routson. Light snacks and a cash bar will be available to guests 21 and over. 

 Tip-Your-Talent originated in March 2014 as a fundraiser to benefit The Arts Partnership’s arts education programs and to showcase Hancock County’s local performers, all while providing a unique and entertaining event for the whole family. 

Tip-Your-Talent is sponsored by Alexandria’s and the Hancock County Convention and Visitors Bureau.
