Maifest 2019

#1 Post by ryanmetcalf » Thu Feb 14, 2019 1:24 am

Maifest, one of the LBG’s annual events, is just around the corner! This year Maifest coincides with our 2nd Big Brew Day Brew-Off competition award ceremony! Winners will be announced at 2 p.m. that day. Stay tuned for details on raffle prizes available for those present!
In 1988, May 7 was announced before Congress as National Homebrew Day. The American Homebrewers Association (AHA) created AHA Big Brew as an annual event to celebrate National Homebrew Day around the world. AHA Big Brew is held each year on the first Saturday in May.
When: 10 a.m to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 4
Where: Lawrence Creates Makerspace, 512 E 9th St, Lawrence, KS 66044

Lawrence Creates Makerspace will provide:
• Space (outdoor and indoor) for everyone to hang out, brew, eat, laugh, etc.
• Power and water for brewing, we will be able to brew outside! Looking forward to nice weather
The Makerspace will remain open to members to use the workspace, but we will have use of the main area and the outdoor space

Heads up to all, the City of Lawrence just (last ~30 min) announced that 9th street will be closed in front of the Makerspace starting next Wednesday (just in time for Maifest!), so you'll want to approach from the North (8th St), and come South on New Jersey
https://www.facebook.com/CityOfLawrence ... 561890675/
Beginning May 1, the intersection of New Jersey & 9th St will be closed as part of the East 9th Street Reconstruction Project. Drop off for New York Elementary School will be shifted to 10th St during this phase of construction. More information: https://lawks.us/2W5kp8M

I apologize, but I put the wrong time. Our Facebook event has a 10a start, I'll try and be to the Makerspace around 9:30a/9:40a.
