The Local: Burpee Summer Festival

Burpee Museum of Natural History (737 N. Main St. Rockford, IL 61103)
Join us on August 16 from 7-11 as we present the first annual, The Local, a new and exciting Summer Festival at Burpee Museum of Natural History. The Rockford area is home to a number of amazing restaurants, breweries, and wineries and we are celebrating everything Rockford has to offer.

At The Local, area breweries and wineries will pair with area restaurants to present a unique pairing for guests to sample. Guests can vote on their favorite pairing and a prize will be awarded at the end of the night to the pair most voted for! Guests can sample for free and purchase a full glass if they choose.

In addition to local food and drink, Clutch Cargo will be out on the Terrace providing great entertainment for the whole night!

With a new and improved silent auction, local breweries, wineries, and restaurants, and Clutch Cargo, we can think of no better way to spend your Saturday night! Tickets are available from July 1, 2014 through August 8, 2014. Tickets are $55/person or 10 for $500. For ages 21 and older. ID's will be checked upon signing in.
