RAC is celebrating 25 years in the community and Frederick Law Olmsted Society is turning 50, and we will celebrate with a fine art auction will be in combination with the Hop Stop Not-for-Profit Craft Beer Festival supporting Art and Ecology Design in our community. Hop Stop is a collaborative effort between RIVERSIDE FOODS, FREDERICK LAW OLMSTED SOCIETY, RIVERSIDE ARTS CENTER.
Riverside Foods, in conjunction with the Olmsted Society and the Riverside Art Center are once again collaborating to bring you the Hop Stop craft beer festival. This fourth year of Hop Stop will certainly be one to celebrate, as we are honoring the 50th Anniversary of the Olmsted Society, and the 25th Anniversary of the Riverside Art Center.
In honor of these anniversaries, Hop Stop will be expanded for 2018, with a new location on Quincy Street, in front of the Riverside Art Center, in downtown Riverside. We will be sampling offerings from local craft brewers, cideries, and Riverside’s own Quincy Street Distillery. Make use of free bicycle valet, bring a designated driver, or take the Metra, which drops you half a block away. Enjoy local food vendors (food available for purchase), art activities for children, a fine arts auction, and live music to round out a wonderful outdoor family friendly setting in the arboretum Village of Riverside. Commemorative tasting glass is provided with each ticket price and this will be a zero waste event.
100% of the proceeds from Hop Stop and Fine Art Auction go to the Olmsted Society and the Riverside Art Center, in order to help foster an ecologically and culturally sustainable future in our community.
