Horner Park Brew Fest- Friday, July 13th, 6:00 PM - 10:00 PM

Four hours of cold craft beer and hot live music on a warm summer night in beautiful Horner Park. Life is good! Join us for a fundraiser to support the sustainability initiatives of the Horner Park Advisory Council including the development of our new riverfront nature trails and the continued preservation of the park's 65 ash trees - the last healthy stand of ash trees left in the entire Chicago park system.

Sample over 50 craft beers including those from some of our great local brewers including Begyle, Old Irving, Ravinia, Half Acre, Lagunitas, Penrose, Dovetail, Alulu, Argus, Band of Bohemia, Twisted Hippo, and Empirical. Local food trucks will line the park where you can purchase a variety of culinary treats.

Live music from 7:30-9:30 will be provided by Chicago's very own, Bumpus. Bumpus and their powerful brand of funk and soul music channels the uplifting energy of Sly & the Family Stone, the spirit of James Brown and the reflective cool of Marvin Gaye. Led by singers James Johnston, Ava Fain and Tina Howell, they bring together funky big beats, deep bass, lush JB Horns and a heavy organ sound that results in a high-octane musical funk frenzy.

Tickets are $40 per person. Your ticket includes: Admission to the event, a tasting glass and samples from every attending brewery. Our sponsors are also offering a special "Designated Driver" ticket price of $10 so you don't have to leave your non-drinking partner at home. Includes admission and water but no beer. You must be 21 years of age or older to attend. Absolutely no children or pets are allowed per park policy. All proceeds go to park improvements. Please join us for this worthy event.

Tickets will go on sale May 1st at Brown Paper Tickets .
