join Us for the fun


Beaglefest 2024

Mark your calendars for Saturday, September 28, 2024 and get ready to experience Midwest BREW’s most exciting event of the year!

Please join us, bring your beagles, family, and friends, and support Midwest BREW all at the same time. Bring your folding chairs or blankets and come and relax, hang out with all the beagles, and have a great afternoon. Whether you are an owner, previous adopter, interested in adopting, or just love beagles, this is the place to be!

Beaglefest is a wonderful opportunity to run with the hounds, or sit with the hounds, or play with the hounds. It is a laugh filled afternoon of family entertainment. It is a chance to give back for all of that beagle love you enjoy and to contribute to our efforts to save more of these wonderful creatures. And since this is our main fundraiser for the year, please do not forget your wallet, checkbook, or credit card. We will have a food truck on site for food and soft drinks, and our merchandise sales area will be stocked with beagle related items as well as generic dog and people products. We will also have several raffles and some other surprises!
