Red, White & Brew Craft Beer and Wine Festival Returns for 7th year

Fundraiser to feature local breweries and wineries, along with food vendors, live music, and an auction to benefit Easterseals NH’s Veterans Count

Laconia, NH – The Red, White & Brew Craft Beer and Wine Festival is back for a 7th year, featuring traditional and seasonal offerings from local breweries and wineries, a car show, food vendors, live music, and an auction to benefit Easterseals NH’s Veterans Count. The event will take place on Saturday, September 30, at Funspot in Laconia, touted as the world’s largest arcade.

The festival will offer two ticket options—VIP ticketholders receive early access at noon on event day for $40 each, while general admission tickets are $25, granting access from 1 to 4 p.m. There is also a $10 ticket rate for designated drivers and a $25 ticket rate for admission to the car show only. More than 50 types of specialty cars are expected to be on display during the afternoon.

Hundreds of attendees will gather to enjoy beer and wine samples from area breweries and wineries. Food will be available at an additional cost from vendors like Angry Hog Barbecue Co., Beans & Greens Farm’s food truck, and Bernini Italian Pizzeria. Mix 94.1 FM will provide live radio coverage, and The Bob Pratte Band will perform live. The festival will also feature a live auction.

“We are thrilled to bring back Red, White & Brew for its 7th year,” said Tim Callahan, Veterans Count’s Executive Committee Chair and Lakes Region Chapter Chair. “This event is a great opportunity to support our veterans while enjoying some of the best beer, wine, and food the area has to offer.”

This year’s generous sponsors include Amoskeag Beverages, Belknap Subaru, Blue Bistro, Coca-Cola, Funspot, Mix 94.1 FM, The NASWA Resort, and South End Media. All proceeds from the festival will benefit Easterseals NH’s Veterans Count, which provides critical assistance and support to military service members, veterans, and their families in New Hampshire.
