Annual Red, White, and Brew festival held at WKU

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – On Saturday afternoon, the 4th annual Red, White, and Brew festival was held on South Lawn at Western Kentucky University.

The event featured six different beer and wine vendors from the Kentucky and Tennessee area for patrons to sample.

Several other local jewelry and fashion businesses set up shop as well.

WKU alumni, both young and old, gathered to have some fun, listen to some music, and enjoy some locally-crafted beverages.

Attendees also received free food at the event.

Red, White, and Brew is fun for all who attend, but it’s also about raising money for a scholarship fund.

“The proceeds go into the Young Alumni Council’s Scholarship Fund which is a scholarship fund specifically for WKU upperclassmen,” said Allie Sharp from the WKU Young Alumni Council. “We, as young alumni, feel there a plenty of opportunities for freshmen to get scholarships, but we thought why are we not reaching out to those students who are about to be young alumni?”

Sharp said the event draws in a lot of recent WKU graduates, but it’s also an event that attracts Hilltopper alumni from every generation.
