FRESH FEST 2020…Y’ALL READY?!
We’re back x 3! Fresh Fest Beer Fest, the country’s first Black beer festival, is excited to be back for year three with the freshest block party in America!
What’s new? We’re bigger than ever before which will allow us to be even more inclusive, extend our reach further into underrepresented communities, and become accessible to a greater number of people. We are thrilled to announce our new location, which brings Fresh Fest exactly where we want it to be: to the people. Our main event, the festival itself, will be held August 8, 2020 in the predominantly Black and redeveloping neighborhood of Allentown, Pittsburgh, affectionately known as Hilltop.
In addition to the Saturday block party, Fresh Fest 2020 will also include a weekend long schedule of events––symposiums, bottle shares, and a brewers’ brunch featuring collaborative food and beverage pairings––to support our primary goals of educating and welcoming (August 7 to August 9). New for 2020 is a hybrid model of both free and ticketed events, allowing even greater access by lowering the barrier that high costs create.
