Unlike many similar festivals, the Glens Falls Brewfest is distinct because its proceeds are all donated to charity as opposed to being a private business venture. In fact, since its founding in 2010, the Glens Falls Brewfest has contributed over $70,000 to community non-profits. Proceeds from the event will benefit two of our area’s unique non-profit organizations: Adirondack Theatre Festival (ATF) and The Feeder Canal Alliance.
