This weekend, one of the biggest annual events at 3 Daughters Brewing makes its return. The sprawling Fall Fest Fundraiser is a 3-in-1 celebration of all things good. Taking place from 12-5 pm on Saturday, October 21, the gigantic and family-friendly party is also a fundraiser for Reach St. Pete, which helps prevent and alleviate homelessness in our city.
The two main events are a massive market chock full of local vendors, and a delightful pumpkin painting shop. In addition, the fall festival will also have a fall photo booth, food trucks, live music, and even raffle prizes and a silent auction. And of course, plenty of beer, wine, cider, sangria and hard seltzer from the bar at 3 Daughters.
The full event is free to attend, including the market, food trucks, photo booth and live music, while the pumpkin painting kit is $25 for adults and $15 for kids. The market portion features more than 50 local artisans, makers, boutiques, plant nurseries, artists, and much more. Vendors from throughout Tampa Bay will be on hand all afternoon.
Meanwhile, the pumpkin painting portion of the day is an everything-you-need-kit to properly decorate your own pumpkin (or pumpkins, plural, for the hard workers among us). Tables are set up with covers laid down, and each kit includes everything needed: a fresh pumpkin, paint, and brushes. Tickets are available here. Attendees are welcome to take their new pumpkins to the fall photo booth area for pictures.
Pumpkin sales, as well as the raffle and silent auction, all benefit Reach St. Pete, and of course, any additional donations are welcome. For years, Reach St. Pete has helped to prevent and alleviate homelessness, while serving the low-income and at-risk population in Pinellas County. Proceeds from this event will support their Pop-Up Pantry initiative to bridge the physical, financial, and educational gap to food and nutrition. Read more about the Pop-Up Pantry here.
