The Rotary Club of Youngstown’s Groundhog Craft Beerfest was started in 2019 as a way to bring local craft brewers and the community together to enjoy the many tasty beers brewed in our region and to raise money for the charitable works of the Club.

To date, with the help of the local community and many generous sponsors, the Rotary Club of Youngstown has raised over $80,000 from our Groundhog Craft Beerfest. As our 6th Annual event is approaching, we hope that our next event will enable us to surpass $100,000 in total funds raised. An example of how some of these have been invested back into the community: Repairing the pool at Camp Stambaugh, YWCA Mahoning Vally, Project MKC,
Robinson-Shuba Statue Project, Rotary International’s Polio Plus program and so much more.

Please join us at beautiful Stambaugh Auditorium on February 3, 2024 for the most popular craft beers from local and regional breweries with live entertainment, fun and food.

Also available to purchase are Designated Driver tickets. They are $25 and the DD receives free water or pop, a $5 food voucher and no alcohol.

The Beerfest will consist of two sessions, 12 to 4 p.m. and 5 to 9 p.m., with an hour-long VIP tasting for the first hour of each session.

In addition, Rotary Club of Youngstown is seeking sponsorships at various levels to help support this event. Sponsors will receive varying numbers of VIP tickets to the Beerfest as well as other benefits, depending on sponsorship level. Sponsorships are available by contacting Shannon Tirone, sponsorship co-chair, at 330.720.2056, or Josh Prest, co-chair, at 330.509.3381 or email [email protected]
