Celebrate Spring With Louisiana Fest At OMB

The fifth annual festival starts on April 18

Hooray for the warm weather! It’s time to get outdoors and enjoy spring with beer, food, friends and music. The Olde Mecklenburg Brewery is celebrating the fifth annual Louisiana Spring Fest on Saturday, April 18.

This will be the first year of the Cajun-fueled fete at the new brewery, and the celebration offers food, music, and great local beer.



Doors open at 11 a.m. and tickets are $25 per person and include:

  • entry to the Spring Fest
  • a 17 oz. beer of your choosing
  • a plate of food featuring your choice of entrees including: crawdads, shrimp or jambalaya plus corn and potatoes

Live music starts at 12:30 p.m. when The Neighbors take the stage to play blue grass favorites. CharlyHorse will play Americana Roots music on stage from 4-7 p.m.

“This is one of my favorite events of the year,” says John Marrino, founder of OMB. “The people in Louisiana know how to relax and enjoy themselves, and it’s hard not to enjoy crawfish, jambalaya, bluegrass music and cold, fresh beer. Our new Biergarten completes the setting.”

The complex at 4150 Yancey Road includes a 60-barrel state of the art brewhouse visible from the Biergarten, the Brauhaus restaurant and taproom, and of course the stunning multi-acre Biergarten featuring shady trees and lots of green grass prime for picnic style eating.
