Wow it's HOT! Of course it's hot because its about some of the most loved things in Sacramento: Chili, Beer and Art for Children. And it better be hot because chili lover's are typically looking for some heat and the festival will indeed be bringing on the heat and the flavor along with the hops.
The festival will not feature visual art during the event but proceeds are donated to help raise funds for Sacramento art and music programs. This is a great cause, particularly in light of the many cutbacks that schools and other resources have faced in recent years. Programs for art and music have usually suffered first when the financial decisions are made when the budgets are tight. Organizations like The Sacramento Artists Council support the continued education and encouragement of children as well as local striving artists to develop their creative talents. It is well known that a creative mind is usually a more productive mind and art and music inspires millions to be creative thinkers.
The Sacramento Beer & Chili Festival will take place on April 19, 2014 from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. Fremont Park, located at 1515 Q Street, will be reserved for the hundreds of visitors who love beer and chili and some who just love supporting the arts. This is the third year for the festival and it has grown remarkably in just a short time. The number of chili competitors as well as beer vendors has increased to make this one of Sacramento's premier events.
