Central Louisiana's Original Outdoor Craft Beer & Music Festival

Mark your calendars for the newest 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 featuring local musicians along with regional headliners. 

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 2pm avoiding lines for limited supply brews and General Admission will begin at 3pm. 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.

Last year’s Funktoberfest was LEGENDARY. The non-profit event raised $9,000 that was given to TIPITINA'S INSTRUMENTS A' COMIN PROGRAM. Every penny stayed right here in OUR community. The recipients of last year’s gift was Alexandria Middle Magnet School and was utilized to put much needed musical instruments into their band program.

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.
