Looking for Something Fun to Do? WestFest 2017 Starts This Week!

Russ Ensley/ThinkStock

Rides, beer, food, and entertainment? YES PLEASE!

Even though its not summer yet it sure is starting to feel like it. With 80 degree weather in the forecast this week, the perfect way to spend it is at WestFest 2017!

WestFest is a festival featuring a carnival plus beer and food tents, live entertainment and a classic car show. The event will be held at the John Ball Zoo from May 18th until the 21st. The kickoff will be Thursday evening from 5p-10p.

You’re bound to get thirsty after trying over and over to win that giant stuffed bear so cool yourself down at the beer & wine tent featuring different beverages including the WestFest Pale Ale, which is new this year, made by The Mitten Brewing Co. especially for WestFest! And OF COURSE everyone’s favorite hang out spot (okay, mine) will be the food tent where food will be cookin’ fresh on the grill.

If cars are your thing, the Classic Car Show will be held on Saturday from 3p-5p. Also on Saturday is the Harold and Gladys’ 1920’s Prohibition Wedding Reception which will be a funny mock reception. The show will be at Sacred Heart and will feature dinner and drinks.

Wristbands for the carnival will be $28 but if you like saving money you can get your wristband for only $20 if you purchase it by noon Thursday 5/18. Otherwise, you can just purchase tickets at the event.

Below is a promo video from WestFest last year. You can find more info here.
