Community members will be able to enjoy local beers and ciders when the Marysville Brew & Cider Fest returns this month.
The annual event will be held on Oct. 15 at the Marysville Opera House at 1225 Third Street, Marysville.
It will be held from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., with VIP tickets being allowed to enter an hour earlier at 4 p.m.
It is put on by the Marysville Tulalip Chamber of Commerce.
“This is our annual Brew & Cider Fest,” said Ivonne Sepulveda, president/CEO of the chamber.
“It is a community event and we currently have nine confirmed breweries and cideries coming to it,” she said.
The event brings together local residents for a night of trying products from local breweries while listening to live music.
“It’s a fun event that brings the community out,” said Sepulveda. “I think people will like it for a chance to spend some time with other people and talk with the community."
There are two bands scheduled for the event. Opening the event is Seattle Celtic folk rock band Stout Pounds and following them is the Johnny Cash tribute band Johnny Loves June.
The event raises money for the local chamber of commerce for the services they provide to the local business community.
“Not typically a huge fundraiser for us,” but it does raise some money for the chamber, said Sepulveda.
“We do get a grant from the Marysville hotel/motel tax fund that helps pay for the event as well,” she said.
The event was not held last year because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We had to cancel our 2020 event, so we are excited to bring it back for 2021,” said Sepulveda.
She said that the event will follow the safety mandates of the state so masks will be required except when eating food or drinking.
“The breweries will be spaced accordingly and the food will be individually served as well,” she said.
Coastal Community Bank and HomeStreet Bank are sponsors for the event.
Sepulveda invites the community to come out for a fun night.
“There are no options right now to buy tickets at the door so you have to order them online,” she said.
A VIP ticket option will allow you to get in the doors an hour earlier and there is a $10 designated driver option as well.
