BAM Fest (Beer Art & Music Festival) Returns To Santa Monica Sunday, Oct. 26:

Tickets are selling fast to the 18th Street Arts Center’s renowned BAM Fest (Beer Art & Music Festival) on Sunday, Oct. 26 from 1 pm to 5 pm.

This year’s 5th annual celebration is part of 18th Street’s 25th anniversary weekend that starts on Saturday, Oct. 25 with a chic benefit event from 6 pm to 10 pm. The festivities pick up again on the Sunday afternoon with BAM Fest.

The weekend celebrates 18th Street Arts Center’s rich legacy over the past 25 years and will include everything from performance art and video art installations to gourmet food from local restaurants and food trucks, live music by four bands as well as artisanal wine, spirits, and specialty beers from more than 40 craft breweries.

A special bonus for BAM Fest attendees will be the opportunity to participate in 20-minute mini-educational sessions called “Crash Courses,” presented by craft beer, wine, and art experts.

BAM attendees will also be able to do more than just see or purchase art; they will be able to interact with and visit the studios of 18th Street Arts Center’s artists-in-residence including local artists and arts organizations like Otis College of Art and Design’s MFA in Public Practice program.

Tickets are $45 before Oct. 24 and $50 at the door (that is if tickets aren’t already sold out).

All proceeds benefit 18th Street Arts Center, a Santa Monica 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. It is located at 1639 18th Street, Santa Monica.
