A craft beer festival in the region is hosting more than 80 breweries from Michigan and across the U.S.

The fourth-annual Kalamazoo Craft Beer Festival will be held on Saturday, Nov. 4 at the Wings Event Center in Kalamazoo.

The festival is being presented by Wings Event Center and Townsquare Media.

Attendees will be able to sample more than 250 types of beers, meads and ciders, such as Boatyard Brewing Co.'s New England IPA and Roak Brewing's Cucumber IPA.

Food trucks will also be present at the festival, including ‘Q It Up, Twisted Tail Catering, Kalamazoo Pizza Company, Dulac’s River Dogs and Nick’s Gyros.

The festival will also feature activities like corn hole, presented by Kalamazoo Corn Hole, and keg curling, run by the Kalamazoo Derby Darlins.

Designated drivers are encouraged for all groups attending, as well as taxis, Uber and Lyft rides. Cars parked at the event center overnight will not be ticketed. Mobile homes can park in the center’s parking lot, but there is not a hookup for water or electricity. Re-entry to the event is not permitted after a person leaves.

Tickets can be purchased online or at the Wings Event Center box office.
