April 29 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm

The Gnarly Culpeper Block Party returns Saturday, April 29 from 12pm to 5pm in the heart of historic Culpeper Downtown, the Depot District!  Join Culpeper Renaissance, Inc. (CRI), Culpeper’s non-profit Main Street Program, for the biggest fundraising event of the year, highlighting some of the best local and regional craft brews and ciders in and around the area!

With over 10 breweries in attendance, you’ll be able to sample all your favorites, along with trying many new varieties!  Breweries in attendance include, Far Gohn Brewing Company, Iron Pipe Alewerks, WAR Craft Brewery, Trouvaille Brewing Company, Southern Revere Cellars, Son of a Bear Ciders, Old Trade Brewery & Cidery, Death Ridge Brewery, Beer Hound Brewery and Bald Top Brewery.  Plus, sample Virginia Eagle Distributor favorites to include, South Street Brewery, Devil’s Backbone Brewing Company, Bold Rock Cider, Blue Mountain Brewery and of course crowd favorites, Bud Light and Michelob Ultra!  And don’t worry wine lovers, as there will be five varietals to choose from ranging from crisp to bold and slightly sweet to dry!

The 2023 Gnarly Culpeper Block Party will not only feature a Brew Fest but will also deliver the ever loved and always recognizable, classic rock sounds of Richmond’s Tom Petty Tribute Band, Full Moon Fever, even including some Tom Petty and Stevie Nicks’ covers!  Favorite, local rock band, The Unsuitables will precede Full Moon Fever, opening the day, performing from 12:30pm to 2:30pm.

Great music and thirst clenching beverages are not the only forms of entertainment awaiting you at the Gnarly Culpeper Block Party & Brew Fest!  Shop your favorite artisan craft vendors, like Anything Bows, Bad Ass Pickles, Jackie & Laura Designs, The Sterling Peacock, Too Hot to Candle and Viva Hand-Crafted Jewelry.  Enjoy food options from, Fabulous Foods Brick Oven Pizza, Yalla Pita, Law Dawgs Hotdogs, Mi Ranchito Mexican Food, Moo Thru Mobile Warrenton, Ultimate Food Operation (UFO) Sliders & More, Cap’N Corbin’s Seafood, and Country Kettle Lemonade & Popcorn!

This family friendly event will take place rain or shine and will feature both an adult game area to include corn hole, but also a kid’s game area, with complimentary Sandy’s Face Painting and Caricature Art by Daniel Ryman (tips appreciated!).  Maybe, try your hand at axe throwing (additional cost) with a mobile unit by Axe Hole, or take a swing on State Climb’s mobile Silks unit.  There is truly something to see and do for everyone, no matter the age!
