Local Craft Brewfest and Boston Local Food Festival This Month




The Sustainable Business Network (SBN) of Massachusetts presents its two most popular events, the Local Craft Brewfest, on October 5, and the Boston Local Food Festival, on October 7. 

The Local Craft Brewfest will feature tastings from more than 35 area breweries, wineries and distilleries, along with samples of specialty soda and snacks. The event will be held from 6 to 9:30 p.m. at the John Joseph Moakley U.S. Courthouse, in Boston.

During the same weekend, the Boston Local Food Festival will bring more than 100 local food vendors together on the Rose Kennedy Greenway, in Boston. This free festival takes place from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and features food for buying and sampling, chef “throw-downs,” kids’ activities, cooking demonstrations and live music. This is a zero-waste event, and visitors are asked to bring reusable water bottles and shopping bags.   

“New England is blessed with a wealth of wonderful, locally grown and produced food,” says SBN Managing Director Katrina Kazda. “Our goal is to create connections between local eaters and food producers to encourage more local purchasing, which supports our economy and the health of our environment.”

Cost: Local Craft Brewfest admission is $45 (regular) or $55 (VIP); buy tickets at BostonLocalFoodFestival.com/Festivities/Local-Craft-Brewfest/. Boston Local Food Festival is free. Locations: John Joseph Moakley U.S. Courthouse, One Courthouse Way, Boston (Local Craft Brewfest); and Rose Kennedy Greenway, Wharf Area Parks (near Aquarium T stop), Boston (Boston Local Food Festival).
