Eberhardt takes center stage the night of the Rose Garden’s 25th annual Performing Songwriter Competition. This year’s contestants, Ric Allendorf, of Middleboro, Mass.; Rob Flax, of Boston, Mass., and Abbye West Pates, of Memphis, will square off by performing two songs each for a panel of three music-industry judges.

The Rose Garden’s all-volunteer staff serves home-baked dessert items and hot and cold drinks of the season before the show and during intermission. The Rose Garden is located at The Congregational Church of Mansfield, 17 West St., and is wheelchair-accessible and alcohol-free.
