Walk a Country mile to premier beer festival


Hundreds enjoy a day in the sun at the Country & Craft Beer Festival at Central Park at Mill Creek.

Bakersfield loves a beer festival, but one this weekend has even more things our town loves: food, country music and, for the lucky VIPs, dogs. The Country and Craft Beer Festival will return for its fourth year at Mill Creek Park on Saturday.

Attendees can enjoy beers from more than 50 breweries, food from 20-plus restaurants and music from local country acts. Tickets are still available, but keep an eye on your favorite weather app before heading out for the festival: Forecasts show rain is possible. With an event this fun, though, the rain won't put a damper on the good times.
