Come enjoy delicious local craft brews and other beverages under the sunset tent! The Sunset “Brewer’s Against Breast Cancer” Party will be open Saturday evening, August 6, with great local music that will get you out of your chairs and dancing.

The tent will also be open in the afternoon on Festival day. Come on in, relax, enjoy a beverage, and listen to some tunes by the lake.
