Gulf Brew 2016

Jul 01, 2016 10:34AM, Published by Savannah Ludwig, Categories: Arts+Entertainment, Acadiana Life, Lifestyle




Acadiana Center for the Arts has announced the date for their biggest fundraiser, Gulf Brew. Gulf Brew, Acadiana’s largest beer festival, will take place on Saturday, July 30 at Blackham Coliseum from 6pm-9pm.

The fundraiser has been moved to a new location and back to the summer season, where it has experienced much success in the past. Tickets are on sale at the Acadiana Center for the Arts, and will also be available for purchase at acadianacenterforthearts.org.

Pre-purchased tickets for tasters are $35 and for “designated driver tickets” (non-drinkers), tickets are $15.

Ticket prices increase to $40 at the door for beer tasters.

Gulf Brew hosts around 3,000 guests and receives incredible sponsorship from local businesses. Moving back to the summer and to the air-conditioned venue, big changes are on the rise for this fundraiser. Gulf Brew will have a variety of brews, delicious food housed inside the venue, live music performances, dancing, and more. AcA Executive Director Dr. Gerd Wuestemann says: “We’re bringing the brew back to summer and it’s going to feel new and fresh. This is Christmas in July for beer lovers! Gulf Brew is always a great time to bring the community together to support our mission of Fostering Art & Culture in Acadiana.”

Funds from Gulf Brew support AcA’s artist outreach projects, educational programs and summer camps, visual arts exhibits, community development projects, and grant making abilities. This season, AcA brought celebrity performers like Randy Newman and Buddy Guy to the Heymann Center, while also filling AcA’s James Moncus Theater with thousands of attendants for performances from BODYTRAFFIC, Shovels and Rope, many local artists, and more. If you are interested in becoming a sponsor for Gulf Brew, please call 337.233.7060. Ask for Bree Sargent, Educational Director or Kelsey May, Marketing Coordinator.
