Join us for the Fifth Annual Artists & Artisans Holiday Extravaganza. The team behind DC’s 3 Stars Brewing Company is throwing their epic holiday party again Sunday, December 18th from 1-6pm. Each year since they opened, the guys at 3 Stars have put together an amazing locavore market at the brewery to celebrate small local businesses, promote their friends and fellow entrepreneurs and throw an awesome party. This year is no exception with over 16 different vendors, DJ’s, live music, and tons of great food. Included in this massive array of vendors, artists, & chefs are Ivy City Smokehouse, Greenhat Gin, Catoctin Creek Whiskey, Cotton & Reed, Rachel Pfeffer Jewelry, District of Clothing, Jerkface Jerky, Cielo Productions, Buttercream Bakeshop, Qualia Coffee, Sloppy Mama’s BBQ, Odd Provisions, & Undone Chocolate.
These parties sell out every time, and this one is certain to follow suit. The parties are set up as a market with independent vendors operating their “shops” inside the brewery. There is a great party vibe that DJ Smudge keeps rolling with great tunes throughout the afternoon and there will be an epic live performance from the Silver Spring School of Rock as well as a bellydancing show with Boho Belly Dance. There is always amazing food from our food partners, and the local spirit producers definitely contribute their own brand of fun into the mix of available drinks. There will also be plenty of great gift ideas from our local vendors including housewares, clothing, jewelry and more. Ticket price includes a tasting glass and your first beer, after which all additional beers and food offerings will be served a la carte.
