The ever-popular Full Circle Festival returns to the 42 North campus in East Aurora on Saturday, May 18.  This year’s festival, supported by Taste NY’s Western NY Welcome Center, will be a free event that showcases New York state produced beverages and highlights the sustainability of the region’s craft beverage industry.

42 North Brewing will be joined by local producers and farmers with each showcasing and educating attendees on their products.  Attendees will also be able to sample and purchase many of the products at the festival.  In addition to the vendors, Brothers Blue, one of Buffalo’s favorite bluegrass bands, will perform in the beer garden.

“This year we decided to change things up a bit with the Full Circle Festival.  Not only is it returning to the brewery, but this year it will be free to attend,” stated John Cimperman, 42 North’s founder. “We really think it’s important to highlight local producers and, in doing so, emphasize the importance of supporting local.”

42 North will be joined by a diverse group of producers and exhibitors.

The line-up includes Taste NY Welcome Center, Cornell Cooperative, Cole Road Farms, Wildflower Meadery, Spotted Octopus Brewing, Mystic Hills Brewery, Johnson Estates Winery, Koestner Farms, Clarksburg Cider, Lilly Belle Meads, 1911 Established, and many more.

The event is free to attend and runs from 12-5pm at 42 North’s brewery campus in East Aurora.
