Chouffe Fest - Washington D.C.
Saturday, June 21, 2014 from 7:00 PM to 11:00 PM (EDT)
Washington, DC , United States
Chouffe Fest, a one-night beer fest, is sweeping the nation, bringing the Chouffe world to gnome-sized life while enjoying our Belgian craft beers.
In each market, Chouffe Fest transforms unique event spaces into a gnome-inspired realm using a larger-than-life entranceway, an eight-foot tall gnome throne photo booth and big-scale versions of the classic games checkers, Jenga and Connect Four.
Chouffe Fest is artistically curated from top to bottom, introducing new stop-start animation loops in each city based on local landmarks. In addition to these massive projections, there are also stations offering live screen printed posters, on-site letter pressed postcards to write and send, coloring for the young at heart, and a gnome-i-fying caricature artist. Add in a special musical act, a DJ to keep the feet tapping and complimentary food to pair with delicious beers and Chouffe Fest offers an all-inclusive night that will not soon be forgotten.
