Wedtoberfest is an exciting alternative to traditional wedding shows. Kick start the wedding planning process with an event that combines a casual wedding show and a craft beer festival. Wedtoberfest will take place at Artifact Events, 4325 N. Ravenswood Ave., Chicago, on Thursday, October 4. An evening of beer, bubbly, food and craft spirits, Wedtoberfest is an intimate yet easy-going opportunity to meet wedding vendors from every category—from dresses and formal attire, to invitations, food, beverage (of course) and planning. Admission ticket includes access to all vendors, food samples, beverage tastes and vinyl-heavy DJ sets.
Beverage providers include 3 Sheeps Brewing, Aleman Brewing, Dovetail, Half Acre, Motor Row Brewing, Revolution Brewing, Begyle Brewing, KOVAL Distillery, Band of Bohemia, Seattle Cider Company and Simple Farmer Wines.
