The party is not only a chance to sip and discover your new favorite refreshments -- it's a way to help both CASA of DuPage and the DuPage County Historical Museum. Both organizations will receive a portion of the proceeds from the festival.

CASA of DuPage recruits, trains, and supports volunteers who advocate for abused and neglected children in the DuPage County court system. In 2021, a total of 348 children were served in DuPage County by 154 volunteer advocates. The CASA program in DuPage was incorporated in 1993 to assist the court in making important decisions about the welfare and permanency needs of each child. Funds raised at Brew Fest will help this not-for-profit organization carry out its mission.

Because the fest is for adults of legal drinking age, children in strollers may not attend. Pets and outside alcoholic beverages will not be permitted in the park. Service animals are permitted but must be registered 7 days before the event. Please contact cwilkin@wheatonparks.org.

The fest will go on, rain or shine. Any necessary delays or cancellations due to severe weather or other considerations will be posted on the Wheaton Park District Facebook page at www.facebook.com/wheatonparkdistrict and on the park district RainoutLine.
