The 9th Annual Art & Craft BeerFest will be held on Saturday, February 19th from Noon to 10pm. Kids get into the festival for FREE (all adults must purchase a ticket). From Noon to 6pm will be family fun and kids activities but after 6pm is adults only. The activities for kids are interactive art demos that are hosted at REO Marketplace starting at 1pm.

This year we are switching up the brewery and we’ll be featuring beers only from Stormcloud Brewing Co. & Petoskey Brewing Co. For the non-beer drinkers, we have cider from Blake's Hard Cider.

Art & Craft Beer Fest is an indoor festival hosted at four venues that features interactive art demos, live music, and vendors paired with Stormcloud Brewing Co. & Petoskey Brewing Co. and Blake's Hard Cider. All venues are located on the main strip in REO Town, just a short walk from one another.

The locations are The Cadillac Room, REO Town Marketplace, Robin Theatre, Wheel House Studio and ALT Printing Company.

Annual Events

REO Town may be best known for its special events. Our organization is volunteer-driven, and we are always on the looking out for sponsors (both in-kind and financial), volunteers (that’s you!), and interesting new event concepts. Roughly half of REO Town’s events are coordinated by the REO Town Promotions Committee while the other half are partnerships with other neighborhood and event planning organizations.

REO Town Art Attack!

REO Town Art Attack! is a free, all-ages, outdoor art festival in REO Town! In partnership with REACH Studio Art Center, Art Attack! offers attendees opportunities to make art and celebrate local creators. Vendors line Washington Avenue, with live music and food trucks across the neighborhood. This event takes place in late August/early September.

Nightmare Off Elm Street

Nightmare Off Elm Street is REO Town's neighborhood Halloween party! Businesses stay open late, housing pop-up shows from local artists. Come from 5-8 to grab a bite and check out the exhibitions, then stick around for an evening of costume parties, burlesque and drag shows, and spooky hijinks! This event takes place in late October.

Art and Craft Beer Fest

Art and Craft Beer Fest is a collaboration with I'm a Beer Hound. Activating multiple neighborhood venues, Art and Craft Beer Fest presents an array of film, music, comedy and fine art, along with an impressive selection of local microbrews. A unique aspect of this festival is that it runs from 1PM to 10PM, and includes family-friendly activities during the day. Bounce between heated, indoors spaces and enjoy all that REO Town has to offer! This event takes place in early February.

Lansing Beer Fest

Lansing Beer Fest is an outdoor beer festival on Washington Avenue between South St. and Elm St. in REO Town. The festival features 20+ Michigan Breweries and around 100 craft beers, as well as a variety of ciders and spirits. In addition to the great beer selection, the event offers food trucks, live music, vendors and more! This event takes place in mid June.

REO Town Thrift Store Gala and Burlesque Extravaganza

REO Town’s biggest, weirdest fundraiser, the Thrift Store Gala features burlesque and circus arts performers in a warehouse space somewhere in the REO Town area. Attendees are encouraged to wear thrift or vintage apparel and Decadence Dolls, a Lansing pin-up photography studio, sponsors a ‘Miss Thrift’ pageant.
