The 11th annual Gold Beach Brew & Art Festival, previously scheduled for Sept. 8, has been cancelled.
Due to the Klondike and Taylor Creek fires, the US Forest Service will be taking over the Curry County Fairgrounds as their incident command post through the date the Brew Fest was scheduled.
The cancellation of this event presents a sizeable financial loss for the event’s two sponsors, Curry Arts and Soroptimist International of Gold Beach. A substantial amount of money has been already been expended preparing for the festival. Festival organizers estimate the loss will be several thousand dollars.
The co-sponsors are appealing to festival vendors and artists to consider donating their vendor fee to help reduce the financial hit. Another alternative is to apply this year’s vendor fee as a credit toward next year’s festival fee.
Vendors and artists can find updated information at http://goldbeachbrewfest.org/.
Thank you for your understanding, and thank you to our Firefighters!
See you next year!
