ABOUT THE FESTIVAL

As for the show, it wasn't without incident. Five people were arrested outside the ballpark in a scuffle with police, and the city immediately sued Alexander to recover the money it cost to clean Garvin Park and repair Bosse Field.

But overall, the event was a hit, and a lucrative one for Alexander and his co-promoter, Duncan, an Evansville resident. Its success immediately got the two men thinking big (Erie Canal Soda Pop Festival).

Location

Bosse Field opened on June 17, 1915. It was named in honor of Benjamin Bosse, mayor of Evansville from 1914 to 1922, who bought Garvin Park and helped to build the stadium. From 1921 to 1922, Bosse Field was used as a football stadium and was home to the Evansville Crimson Giants of the NFL.
