Whatâ€™s better than a family friendly weekend in Downtown Corpus Christi? Nothing! Check out these awesome events in the greater downtown area on Saturday and enjoy some great vibes, great beer and great people!
3rd Annual Corpus Christi Brewery Festival
Who is ready for the 3rd Annual Corpus Christi Brewery Festival?! Come on down to the Art Center of Corpus Christi on Saturday, March 9th from 3 pm to 10 pm to experience the collective tastings that Corpus Christiâ€™s breweries have to offer. With our ever-changing brewery scene, Corpus Christi is now home to 6 exceptional breweries with 2 more on the way.
This event brings together local and out of town breweries as well as entertainment, music, and food trucks along our scenic waterfront. From music by Triptonite, The Reely Rontz and more to a Recycled Beer Statue Contest and a Beer Art Competition, there is something for everyone. Feeling like some fitness with your beer? Check out Beer Yoga with Water Dog Floating Yoga (and others) and the traditional 1/2K Beer Run. There will also be a live podcast recording Corpusâ€™ very own â€œBeer Aand A Movieâ€ during the beer run as well as Live Printed Shirts by local artist Ben Sorrell. Check out the complete list of breweries below and for tickets and other information, such as VIP tickets including a four course meal created by the culinary experts of the Chefs of the Coastal Bend, click on the website link listed below.
Bring the whole family and come enjoy fun with your neighbors and some of the local creations from our great city.
8th Annual Vernonâ€™s Crawfish Pachanga
If youâ€™re in the mood for some crawfish, stop by Vernonâ€™s 8th Annual Crawfish Pachanga on Saturday, March 9th starting at 2 pm! This year is even bigger and better because they are expanding into the parking lot across the street from the bar! With live music by Ty Dietz, Caleb Navarro Band, Splendiferous and Falco & the Wolf, family friendly activities for all ages (Who doesnâ€™t love some family photobooth time?!) and more mudbugs that we could possibly eat, this is definitely one of the places to be on Saturday.
