Third Annual Tap and Taste
August 24 • 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm• Free
It’s become cliché to say Springfield is “becoming” a hotspot because it’s time to recognize that Springfield is where it’s at. The city is home to the game-changing Urban Lumber Company, a thriving Main Street and in the heart of it all is Willamalane Parks and Recreation District. Willamalane has proven its dedication to the Springfield community — which is why they were recognized nationally as a top park agency in 2016. Tap and Taste takes over downtown Springfield for the third year. The downtown block party brings together Springfield and Eugene breweries and eateries — including Washburne Café, Plank Town, Swallowtail Sprits and many other food carts and local breweries. This year, Willamalane encourages attendees to celebrate their Springfield pride with the hashtag #SpringfieldProud. And if you’re so proud that four hours of Springfield isn’t enough, Saturday, Aug. 25, is the Springfield Car Cruise and Show and Shine will be downtown — proving that downtown Springfield is the place to be. Tap and Taste runs 5 to 9 pm Friday, Aug. 24 at downtown Springfield. FREE, $2 beer tastings. — Henry Houston
