Spring is here and that means the return of fun Northland traditions. One favorite for beer, music, and food lovers alike is Bent Paddle Brewing's Festiversary.

Festiversary 2024 will be the perfect time for Bent Paddle Brewing Co. to celebrate 11 years of business. The event will also celebrate their beloved team of 47 employees who have crafted over 250 unique, often award-winning beers while supporting over 650 non-profits.

It will also celebrate Bent Paddle Brewing Co. customers and the community. Festiversary 2024 will have a special purple theme to celebrate all things Bent Paddle, while they also honor the 40th anniversary of Prince's Purple Rain.

What Is Festiversary?

If you have yet to experience Festiversary, prepare for an outdoor party spanning over 2 square blocks surrounding the Bent Paddle Brewing Co. brewery and taproom, at 1832 W. Michigan Stree in the Lincoln Park Craft District neighborhood of Duluth.

While beers and beverages are a highlight of the event, there are also food trucks and two stages of live music for attendees to enjoy all day.

It's also a great family event, with kids having as much fun as the adults. Families with children will enjoy the Frost River and Marshall Forest School Family Activities Area filled with activities ranging from the fan-favorite Josh Peter's Dangerous Fun Show, to board demos by Damage Boardshop, to adoptable puppies from Healing Paws Rescue, and more.

Here are vintage cereals that were used to promote some of pop culture's biggest moments (and some you probably forgot about).
