Scenes from The First Annual All Star Craft Beer and Wine Festival
First Annual All Star Craft Beer and Wine Festival
Good Monday morning. Gloomy yes, but this past weekend we had much more glorious weather than first predicted. Philly Chit Chat’s Mike Hirata was out and about covering lots of events. Let’s start today off with first annual “All Star” Craft Beer and Wine Festival held at Citizens Bank Park.
Thousands of beer goers and wine lovers headed to the first annual “All Star” Craft Beer and Wine Festival Saturday May 20, 2017. Guests enjoyed ballpark royalty with exclusive giveaways, activities, amazing craft beer and wine samples from around the world showcased throughout the entire concourse. With over 100 craft beer and wine vendors, food vendors, musical entertainment, and appearances by the Phillies Phanatic, guests are enjoyed running the bases and got their photo taken “sliding into home base.” Let’s see who was there….
The All Star Craft Beer and Wine benefited the Fraternal Order of Police and The Barkann Healing Hearts Foundation uniting a sense of community in the Philadelphia region. The Foundation provides financial assistance to families who are in need, due to recent adversity or tragedy and are immensely grateful to be a part of the festival. Mike, Executive Director of The Barkann Family Healing Hearts Foundation says, “The team at UpcomingEvents.com have been ardent supporters of The Barkann Foundation over the last four years through various events they have hosted throughout the Delaware Valley which have collectively raised more than $20,000. With the help of the direct proceeds raised at The All Star Craft Beer and Wine Festival, The Barkann Foundation will be able to provide financial assistance to (5) very special local families. We are so grateful to be a part of such a fun, unique event planned at Citizens Bank Park and each event attendee can walk knowing they made a significant difference in the lives of several local families through their support and generosity to The Barkann Foundation.” Plan on attending next year’s www.BallparkFestival.com
