Terrific Times at Tappedtober in Natchitoches

There’s something for everyone at Tappedtober in Natchitoches. This craft beer and wine festival returns bigger and better than ever on October 9, 2021. Eagle Distributing and Glazer Distributing will bring in over 100 craft beers from across the country with many local brews ready for you to try.

Another great reason to attend Tappedtober in Natchitoches

Money raised at Tappedtober Craft Beer & Wine Festival benefits two local medical programs. The Northwestern Louisiana Cancer Center will continue the project last year when they purchased a van from Jimmy Granger Natchitoches Ford Lincoln. This van helps cancer patients in the community get to and from their appointments. The Natchitoches Regional Medical Center Foundation will use the proceeds to continue and complete construction on a state-of-the-art Women’s Breast Center including digital mammography.
