2014 Burning River Fest
Presented by Great Lakes Brewing Company to Benefit The Burning River Foundation

This year marks the 45th Anniversary of the infamous fire on the Cuyahoga River. Since that time, our community has made great strides to improve our precious water resources. Celebrate how far we’ve come and keep the momentum going by raising a pint at the 2014 Burning River Fest.

The Fest will take place on Friday, July 25 and Saturday, July 26 from 6-11 pm at the historic Coast Guard Station at Whiskey Island. Tickets are on sale now at

Featuring live music, fresh food and chef demos from local farms and eateries, educational exhibits, and artists from the Cleveland Museum of Art’s Parade the Circle, the Fest will also include these Great Lakes Brewing Company beers on tap: Burning River Pale Ale, The Wright Pils, and a special appearance by fresh Christmas Ale!

Proceeds from the Fest benefit the Burning River Foundation, a local non-profit organization that has donated over $350,000 to date towards the sustainable future of our waterways.
