The third annual Brewsboro Fest has been scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 12, at The Avenue Murfreesboro.
The event will be held from 2 p.m. until 7 p.m. and is expecting a sellout crowd of 2,500. A portion of the ticket sales will go to benefit the Murfreesboro Young Professionals, an arm of the United Way of Rutherford and Cannon Counties.
“We are very excited to bring Brewsboro Fest back to Murfreesboro this year,” said Candace Price, event director for the festival. “We know this event will follow in the footsteps of its sister event, the Music City Brewer’s Festival, and will be around for years and years.”
Attendees will be able to sample brews from local, regional, national and imported breweries in their souvenir mug. Local restaurants will also be on hand serving food for attendees.
Live music begins at 2 p.m. with Judd Hall, who will play until DJ John Mayer takes over at 4:30 p.m. We will have a cornhole tournament sponsored by Jack in The Box with great prizes given away throughout the day.
Free parking will be available at The Avenue near the Belk store.
To purchase tickets in person, stop by Nissan of Murfreesboro on Memorial Boulevard or Liquid Smoke, located in downtown Murfreesboro on the Historic Square. Tickets are also available online at BrewsboroFest.com.
All tickets are $25 (plus tax) in advance but may be purchased at the event for $30 if it has not sold out. Admission to the event includes all beer samples and a souvenir mug. Hotel packages are also available and include a stay at the Embassy Suites Murfreesboro on Saturday night plus two tickets to the event.
Robert Warden, director of Community Outreach for Murfreesboro Young Professionals, said it is a fun experience for the community.
“Murfreesboro Young Professionals’ goal is to provide unique opportunities for members and others to get involved in volunteering at community events,” Warden said. “This is one of the events we sponsor ever year that allows us to give back to the community and the United Way. Brewsboro provides a great atmosphere, allowing participants to sample beverages from all across the country, while tasting great food and listening to awesome entertainment.”
