BAM Fest returns to Santa Monica, October 6, 2012

The 18th Street Arts Center is holding its 3rd Annual Beer, Art and Music Festival, on October 6, 2012. Affectionately known as BAM Fest, this is a fundraiser for the 21 year old Santa Monica based non-profit. The 18th Street Arts Center has become a well-known and internationally respected alternative art space which has sponsored over 1,000 artists through their residency program, and BAM Fest is a great way to help them continue while enjoying some great beers, music and food.

BAM Fest will feature more than 25 craft breweries from around the country as well as local brewers such as Monkish Brewing, Strand Brewing, El Segundo Brewing Company and The Brewery at Abigaile. Regular readers know that we are big fans of our local craft brewers and I am always willing to cover fundraisers for non-profits, so it was an easy decision to attend this event. In addition to all the good beer there will be several food trucks, four live bands and art exhibits including sculptures, videos, paintings and music. Continue reading
