GONZALES — The Gonzales Inquirer and the Gonzales Main Street board are teaming up to produce the first ever Come & Taste It Craft Beer, Wine and Art Festival. Coming in April, the Come & Taste It Craft Beer, Wine and Art Festival will feature craft beer vendors and breweries from all over Texas and the United States, Texas wineries, starving artists, food vendors and even a classic car show. The Craft Beer portion of the event presented by Shiner Beer will host a special VIP night on Friday night April 27, but the main event will be on Confederate Square on Saturday, April 28.
The festival will feature a beer tent and stage set up for craft beer enthusiasts on the east side of the square, while booths will be available for starving artists of all types and genres, local food vendors and Texas wineries on the outside and walkways of Confederate Square. A classic car show will be running at the same time on St. Paul.
“We’re excited to be partnering with the Gonzales Inquirer, Main Street, the Chamber of Commerce and Agriculture, and the Gonzales Economic Development Office to bring this event to Gonzales,” City Tourism director Clint Hille said.
“It’s thrilling to be able to promote the arts, the Gonzales area and all the wonderful wine and beer that is Texas,” said Genora Young, Gonzales Economic Development Executive Director. “This will be a fun event, and hopefully will fill our hotels that weekend and bring new business to our downtown retail establishments.”
“We needed an event to be held in the spring to promote our area, and I’m glad the Inquirer stepped up and thought of this event to benefit our entire community,” said Barbara Friedrich, the Director of the Gonzales Main Street program.
