Hand-Crafted, Local Beer by Natty Greene's

We are proud to welcome Natty Greene's to the Shindig Art+Craft+Music Festival! The Natty Greene's beer wagon will be on site to serve up their delicious brews to quench your thirsting palate.  The Shindig will be a wrist-banded event; anyone wishing to purchase and consume beer will have to stop by the wrist-banding station with proper ID to receive a wristband. Once you got your special wristband, you will be allowed to purchase  a cold Natty's beer and consume it anywhere within the Festival grounds.
Please help us put on a safe and enjoyable festival for all. Consume beer responsibly. Do not drink and drive. Do not leave the festival grounds with your beer. Do not enter Elm Street businesses with beer, and do not bring beer out on the Street from Elm Street businesses. Thanks!!
