Updated 01.05.2021:

It seems like a distant memory, but at one point, we penciled in May 8, 2021 for this year’s beer festival. With the vaccine only now beginning distribution, and with Louisiana still in Phase 2 with 150 people allowed at an outdoor event, we can confidently say a 1500 person festival won't (and shouldn’t) happen anytime soon. We’ve explored options for a smaller festival, but the effort needed to ensure safety and the risk we would ask our volunteers and vendors to take on is not something we are prepared to do.  We also feel that the smaller guest count would not give the sponsors or the nonprofits the exposure they deserve. That being said, there will not be a Louisiana Beer Festival in 2021.  
 
We are choosing not to announce a 2022 date in the event that early fall would be better than our usual May time frame. We would of course love your participation in the next festival, and when there is less uncertainty, we will be reaching out for everyone’s availability.  
 
Until then, stay safe, and we hope you all have a prosperous and healthy new year in 2021!
