7th Annual Art & Craft Beer Fest

The 7th Annual Art & Craft BeerFest will be held on Saturday, February 9th from Noon to 10pm. The Festival will be kicked off with a ceremonial firkin tapping at Noon.

Art & Craft Beer Fest is an indoor festival hosted at four venues that features art, comedy, short films and music. All venues are located on the main strip in REO Town, just a short walk from one another.

This year we changed things up a bit by adding comedy and short films to the festival for the first time. How the festival is laid out this year, The Cadillac Room will have acoustic music, Market Commons will have live bands, Robin Theatre will show short films and the heated tent behind REO Town Pub will host the comedy show. All the venues will have a wide range of amazing art.
