There will be no shortage of things to do this weekend with the second annual Brewfest and Wolf City Rods and Rides car show sharing the venue at Marvin Brookman Stadium on Rodeo Road.
The second annual Brewfest will be in the rodeo grounds Saturday, June 14, from 6 to 11 p.m. Admission will be charged.
The seventh annual car show will be a free event and feature antique and classic cars and trucks, and street rods in the stadium parking lot, Friday and Saturday, June 13-14. A poker run is also planned.
The Wolf Point Chamber of Commerce and Agriculture-sponsored Brewfest will feature the band Downtime from Billings, playing from 8 to 11 p.m. Downtime offers a blend of dance music, rock, country, pop and reggae, with music by artists from the 1960s through the present.
“We are going to have wine this year and that’s from Yellowstone Cellars from Billings. We did not have wine last year. There’s going to be hard cider this year and it’s from Lockhorn Cider House out of Bozeman,” Aaron Kurokawa, an organizer of the event, said.
Fourteen breweries from all over Montana will feature their brews, as well as Doc’Z from Wolf Point.
“Some of the brewers will be there, too,” he said.
“There will be food available for sale Dustin Hunsaker from the Elks, JJ Pederson from Wolf Point Cafe and Old Town Grill,” Kurokawa said.
Nearly 300 people attended the first Brewfest last year.
“I don’t know how many will come this year. There seems to be quite a few people talking about it. I hear a lot of people talking about it,” Kurokawa said.
There will be soda for the non-drinkers.
Admission will be restricted to people age 21 and over.
People arriving for Brewfest while it is still daylight can enjoy 80 to 100 antique and classic cars and trucks and street rods that will be on display in the stadium parking lot. The Wolf City Rods and Rides car show will be Friday and Saturday, June 13-14.
In the event the parking area is muddy due to rain, the car show will be moved to the Western Bank parking lot.
Car show organizer Randy Pautsch said the event has attracted 80 to 100 cars the past several years. About half the cars belong to local residents.
The car show is a separate event from Brewfest.
Wolf City Rods and Rides is sponsoring a poker run Friday, June 13, beginning with registration at Pro Tire at 5 p.m. and finishing at Marvin Brookman Stadium about 9:30 p.m. About 40 of the cars that will be displayed in the car show are expected to participate in the poker run that will include several stops at Wolf Point businesses and the Vida Country Club.
