Huntley Area Lions Club Presents Brat and Brew Fest: A Celebration of Community, Food, and Music

The Huntley Area Lions Club is thrilled to announce our second annual Brat and Brew Fest, taking place on Saturday, August 3, 2024, from 2:00 PM to 8:00 PM at Sew Hop’d Brewery, 1 Union Special Plaza in Huntley. This community event promises to be a fun filled with good food, live music, exciting raffles, and a Culver's frozen custard eating contest.

Attendees will have the opportunity to buy sizzling bratwursts, hamburgers and hot dogs (from Reams meat market), with chips, coleslaw and Culver’s frozen custard, while listening to live music and enjoying beverages from Sew Hop’d Brewery.

In addition to the incredible food and music, Brat and Brew Fest will offer thrilling raffles with exciting prizes generously donated by local businesses and sponsors. Attendees will have the chance to win valuable items while supporting the Huntley Area Lions Club's ongoing community initiatives.

One of the highlights of this year's festival is the Culver's frozen custard eating contest at 5 PM, where participants will compete to see who can devour this treat the fastest. This spirited competition promises laughter and entertainment. You will also be able to see the Team USA cup stacking champs demonstrate their skills.

Brat and Brew Fest is not only a celebration of great food and entertainment but also an opportunity to give back to the community. The Huntley Area Lions Club will allocate all the proceeds to support the hearing and vision impaired, making a positive impact on the lives of those in need.

Join us on August 3, 2024, from 2:00 PM to 8:00 PM at Sew Hop’d for the Huntley Area Lions Club's Brat and Brew Fest. Admission is free, and families are encouraged to attend. Mark your calendars, gather your loved ones, and get ready for a fun filled day.
