A perfect union of craft beer and live music, Crazy Mountain Brewing Company created Ed Fest in 2011 to bring people together and celebrate the growing popularity of craft beer. What started as a small festival in the streets of the Riverwalk has grown; it’s now held in on the WECMRD soccer fields. Last year’s festivities included more than 65 local, regional and national breweries pouring samples of their world-class beers and ciders, along with craft distilleries sampling their wares. Past musical acts have included the Drive By Truckers and The North Mississippi All Stars. Visit www.edfestbeer.com for more information.
