Ready to get FUNKY?

Mark your calendars for the FUNKIEST festival in Central Louisiana. The 4th Annual Funktoberfest will be held on October 6, 2018. This non-profit festival showcases craft beer samples from professional micro-breweries, a home brewers competition with sampling and incredible live music.

2018 Music Line-up to be announced Thursday, July 19th at Huckleberry Brewing

Funktoberfest is proudly brought to you again by a group of amazing sponsors, enthusiasts of craft beer, music, and the arts. We collectively share the desire to give back to the community in which we live.

Funtoberfest VIPs get in at 2 p.m. avoiding lines for limited supply brews and General Admission will begin at 3 pm. Attendees vote with their dollars for the “People’s Choice” award during the Homebrewer competition. Money raised will benefit the Tipitina’s Foundation. The homebrews will be judged by each homebrewer and a “Top Brewer” will be awarded.

The first three Funktoberfests were LEGENDARY. The non-profit event has raised close to $50,000 for TIPITINA'S INSTRUMENTS A' COMIN PROGRAM. Every penny stayed right here in OUR community. 2017 School Awardees will be announced at the Funk Nation Kickoff Party on July 19th!

Our local school music programs are counting on you to attend the most Funktabulous Party! You know we have a good time RAIN or SHINE! This year is going to be bigger and better with many new enhancements to the overall experience. Don't miss out on a VIP experience like no other.
