There was a time when beer was an important part of community gatherings. When families would come together in public beer gardens and enjoy an afternoon of camaraderie, playing games singing songs and generally enjoying what amounted to a family day in the park. With the recent decision to continue the Shore Craft Beer Fest and Riverwalk Celebration, the City of Salisbury is working to recreate those days and memories.
The June 24  event is a community-wide partnership between the Arts and Entertainment District, the City and Shore Craft Beer. The more-than-a-dozen breweries that have committed to attending will stand side by side with artists and artisans as the city celebrates the reopening of the Salisbury Riverwalk.
Throughout the afternoon people will be allowed to sample some of the region’s finest craft beer while enjoying live local music provided by some of the area’s premiere bands.
All along Market Street, children’s performers will entertain the younger attendees at interactive stations that will include a sidewalk chalk mural on the side of the library. There also will be a bouncy house and other kid-centric distractions.

Shuttles to and from the event from Ocean City will also be available for those who preregister.
