Funds raised from the event will be used to help local schools and community groups.


The Moorpark Morning Rotary Club has announced it will host 4th Annual Moorpark Beer Festival.

This annual community fundraiser will take place from 5-9:30 p.m. on Saturday, October 12 at Moorpark College.

Brewers include local favorites like Firestone Brewery, Enegren Brewery and Wolf Creek Brewery; National Chains like Fat Tire Ale’s New Belgium Brewery and Blue Moon Brewery; and local homebrewers like the Simi Valley Home Brewers.  Ninkasi Brewing Company and Deschutes Brewery are both traveling to the festival from Oregon.

“We are excited to once again bring this great community event to Moorpark” Lilly Canterbury, chair of the festival, said on the event’s website. “This event is a great opportunity to bring the community of Moorpark together with our neighbors in the region and to raise money to support our local schools and nonprofit organizations.”

This year’s event will feature a 100,000 square foot festival space, large VIP area and ample parking in the college lots.

The event has become a staple in the Moorpark community calendar since 2010 and funds the Moorpark Morning Rotary Club’s philanthropic efforts throughout the year.  All of the proceeds of the festival benefits the Moorpark Morning Rotary Club Foundation, a non-profit organization, which uses the funds to support local schools and community organizations.

Last year, the Moorpark Morning Rotary Foundation gave $25,000 in festival profits to 20 local schools and nonprofits.
