Arts & Drafts Returns to The Brewerie by Alex Bieler

It’s been nearly a decade since the very first Arts & Drafts Fest took place at the Brewerie. The three-day occasion dedicated to art, music, and beer won’t slow down this March during the 15th rendition of the biannual tradition.

Arts & Drafts provides treats for three different senses: sight, sound, and taste. Art lovers will be able to see the various works created by talented locals, most of which can be purchased if a certain sculpture or painting catches your fancy. Music fans can take in 14 different shows over the course of three days, with headline performances by folk-rockers Sean Patrick and the Newgrass Revolution, the bluesy Rodger Montgomery, and the stylistically-diverse band Basket Eddy. And of course, the Brewerie will have plenty of tasty beverages available to please the folks most interested in the latter half of Arts & Drafts – not that proper brewing isn’t an art form on its own.

The fest will run from noon to midnight each day from March 5 to 7, with music starting at 6:30 p.m. Entrance is free up until 8 p.m. all three days, and then it’s merely a $3 donation for all kinds of treats.

There’s a reason Arts & Drafts has lasted nearly a decade, so head down to the Brewerie to join in on the local tradition. – Alex Bieler
