PotatoStock took place at the Columbus Commons in Columbus, Ohio, celebrating that spud life with peace, love, and potato salad.
3. Sponsors ended up providing the 3,000 pounds of potatoes for the event. Brown said he would work with the Columbus Foundation to create a charitable fund.
4. Already, Brown has donated $20,000 to the fund, which will support groups fighting hunger and homelessness.
5. Proceeds from the event, which haven’t been tallied yet, will also go to the fund.
6. In addition to music, food, and beer, potato sack races were a natural source of entertainment.
7. Local restaurants and food trucks got involved, sharing their best tater recipes.
8. In a statement in July, Brown said he wanted to use the money he had raised to make the world a better place.
“This may have started out as a little fun with potato salad, but it’s something different now. It’s an opportunity to make the world a better place. Those opportunities don’t come around every day.”
