The Historic Odessa Foundation is a local assembly on a mission to ensure the legacy of the Historic Houses of Odessa for future generations… What better way to raise a little bit of money than to offer Greater Wilmington’s locals and tourists a day filled with music, food, fun and a ton of local, regional and national beers?
This annual fund-raiser is your chance to sample some of the best regional and national craft beers along with locally produced wine and spirits! Check out some participating breweries below and for the full list follow this link! -- https://www.odessabrewfest.com/breweries
Besides the obvious allure of tastings galore, there will also be amazing music throughout the day and vendors providing food, snacks, and more!
Grab yourself a beer and check out this year’s performances:
Spokey Speaky - Main Stage - 12pm to 3pm
With their signature reggae-infused sound Spokey Speaky is a fan-favorite! The homegrown Delaware music brings Bob Marley, one-time Wilmington, Delaware resident, and Jimmy Cliff together for an uplifting and upbeat energized show.
Shot Gun Betty - Main Stage - 3pm to 6pm
Shotgun Betty, a new act on the main stage, is a rock band based out of Maryland and Delaware. With twangy tunes, and a style of their own fans of Skynyrd to Johnny Cash will love listening and singing along!
Charlie Hannagan - Garden Stage - 12pm to 3pm
Visit the Garden Stage to hear Charlie Hannagan perform his talented melodies which mesh different styles to create his own unique sound – truly a crowd pleaser!
Tony Mowen - Garden Stage - 3pm to 6pm
A solo acoustic set in the back garden for anyone wanting to wind down in the late afternoon. Mowen's guitar ballads and melodious voice is a combination great for any couples wanting a romantic ode to end their afternoon.
Be sure not to miss out on the vendors who have the snacks! We highly suggest trying Cantwell’s Tavern and UDairy Creamery. But there are plenty more where that came from!
