GHOULS NIGHT OUT - The Arts & Craft Beer Fundraiser for 2018!

Red Deer Arts Council hosted third Arts and Craft (Beer) Fundraiser entitled "GHOULS NIGHT OUT" took place on Friday October 26th, 2018 at Festival Hall.

Guests wore their spookiest costumes as they enjoyed craft beer from Troubled Monk Brewery and Siding 14 Brewing Co. They enjoyed fine cuisine from our food vendors: Cuppitycakes Bakeshop, Bo's Bar & Grill, State & Main, Red Boar Smokery and Tribe! Folks also danced the night away to the KlamDaggers! Central Alberta Film Festival Society provided some cool local horror films and clips from creepy old movies! Between a silent auction, raffles, a 50/50 draw as well as door prizes for the best costumes! It was a fund event and for Halloween.

This event would not have been possible without the generous support of our volunteers and our sponsors! Please patronize sponsors who believe that the arts are an important part of our community.
