Tappedtober cancels 2020 event

The growth and community support of the Tappedtober Craft Beer & Wine Festival over the last two years has been a truly humbling experience for our dedicated team. To put on an event, which has attracted over 5000 attendees in such a short time, is no small task. Our team spends the better part of 6 months making things happen in preparation.

With the recent announcement by Governor John Bel Edwards to extend Phase 2 restrictions through August 28th and the uncertainty of holding a mass gathering in the near future, our team at Tappedtober has decided to put the fun on hold and cancel our 2020 event.

Tappedtober is not just festival. It is a vital fundraising event the ensures healthcare excellence is available at Natchitoches Regional Medical Center and the Northwestern Louisiana Cancer Center. We are grateful for our faithful and community caring sponsors. You can learn more at tappedtober.com.

Thank you for your understanding as we continue to battle the COVID-19 pandemic.

Tappedtober is Natchitoches, Louisiana’s very first Craft Beer and Wine Festival. This annual event is known for the family environment, top-notch entertainment, big screen football, and, of course, the best beer and wine on the planet. Over 45 craft beer brands will be on hand in the beer pavilion. This family event has something for everyone: Kid Zone, incredible music line-up, football games on a giant digital screen, fireworks, food trucks, games, and much more. 100% of all proceeds support the missions of the Northwestern Louisiana Cancer Foundation and Natchitoches Regional Medical Center Foundation.

Natchitoches Regional Medical Center Foundation exists to ensure NRMC is equipped to excel in delivering healthcare excellence to every member of our community. The Foundation does this through funding technology advancements (i.e. 3D mammography), new healthcare services, nursing & allied health scholarships, and community wellness grants.

Northwestern Louisiana Cancer Foundation was formed to ease the burden of access to healthcare for our most vulnerable patients (i.e. transportation, gas cards, lodging, dietary & financial assistance). Through generous community support, the funds to purchase the van are on hand. Now our goal is the operational costs of the transportation assistance program.
