The former vice president and CFO of A’GACI, Reid Hackney served as a leading executive the Ascena Retail Group. Now retired, Reid Hackney enjoys attending local dance halls and concert venues such as Gruene Hall.
The oldest continually-operating dance hall in Texas, Gruene Hall dates back to 1878 and retains its original structure and design. The hall hosts numerous concerts and other events, playing an important role as a social and entertainment venue. Every year, Gruene Hall also hosts its annual music and wine festival.
The 32nd Annual Gruene Music & Wine Fest will begin on Thursday, October 4, 2018, and run through Sunday, October 7. The festival will feature catered dinners from Gristmill River Restaurant and Le Cordon Gruene Food Alley as well as wine tasting from carefully-selected local wineries. It will also offer silent auctions and a variety of Americana and Texan music.
