Brewgaloo : A Boozy Affair Returns to Raleigh!

The much-awaited event for beer lovers is on its way. Yes, you read it right! The Brewgaloo is returning to Raleigh, North Carolina for its annual event, bringing in the most extensive collection of craft breweries in the state.

This year, Brewgaloo will be taking place on August 13-14 in Downtown Raleigh’s Fayetteville Street. The festival is set to highlight over 100 breweries, food vendors, live music, and other entertaining activities that will make your weekend unforgettable!

A Fest for the Booze Lovers

Since its inception in 2012, Brewgaloo has become synonymous with the beer-lovers of #Raleigh. The annual event is the largest craft beer festival in North Carolina and has always been the most awaited gathering of the year.

The festival is not just a one-stop-shop for the beer-heads but also showcases the state’s vibrant food scene with various food vendors lining up around the street. With various street performances, music events, and other entertaining activities, Brewgaloo is not only a beer festival but a true community gathering.

Parking Around the Event

Parking around the Downtown Raleigh area is always a challenging task, especially when the festival is taking place. But don’t worry; there are plenty of parking options around the area.

The recommended parking locations for the festival are Moore Square, City Center Parking Deck, Alexander Square, and Wilmington Station. Raleigh’s downtown parking meters are free after 5 p.m. and all day on weekends, so you might as well opt for on-street parking. Another ideal option is to take a ride-sharing service or bike-sharing service to avoid the parking hassle.

Weather Update

Oh, weather! The wild card for any outdoor event. The Brewgaloo festival is held outdoors in the middle of August, so the weather gods can occasionally grant us a gift of ray-filled days or dark rain clouds.

According to the current weather patterns, temperatures in Raleigh during August go upto 80°F during the day and 65°F in the evenings. Therefore, we recommend attendees dress comfortably with light layers for the hot summer days but prepare for the accidental chills when the day transitions to night.

The festival runs regardless of the weather forecast, so be sure to check the event’s website for any updates regarding potential inclement weather.

Final Thoughts

Are you ready for the most entertaining weekend of the year? With over 100 breweries serving various combinations of beer, food vendors, and live performances, Brewgaloo is an event that shouldn’t be missed.

We’ve got the latest on parking and weather details to make sure you have a smooth-sailing festival experience.
