The Sixth-Annual Alpine Insurance Agency Ed Fest, brought to you by the team at Crazy Mountain Brewery, celebrates international craft beer culture with over 40 craft breweries tasting microbrews from around the world. Ed Fest promises summer fun for the whole community with wares from Colorado purveyors, and live music by the internationally renowned Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue. Ed Fest benefits the Eagle River Watershed Council a local nonprofit dedicated to protecting our rivers through educational programs, special events, restoration projects, monitoring, research, and community volunteer projects.
