SANFORD – Saturday’s forecast calls for warm temperatures and partly sunny skies – arguable the perfect weather for Sanford On Tap – the annual brew and food event set for historic Goodall Park, on Roberts Street.

The event kicks off at 2 p.m. and runs until 6 p.m., offering attendees the opportunity to sample from an array of 17 breweries and cider producers and everything from crepes to gourmet hot dogs – and with a nod to Sanford’s Franco heritage, poutine.

Sanford on Tap was such a hit in 2018 – when it  was among an array of events marking Sanford’s 250th birthday – that the organizers decided to do it again this year.

“Last year’s festival was a great community event bringing out an estimated 700 participants,” said Sanford Parks and Recreation Director Alan Grady. “ With eight food trucks and 17 brewers lined up for this year’s festival, we’re anticipating an excellent turnout. The event will feature phenomenal fermented beverages with a chance to get to know the producers.”

Grady said there is no fee to get into the festival; people need only to pay for the food they choose. Those wishing to sample the brew may purchase a $35 ticket in advance; or a VIP ticket for $60, which includes a commemorative T-shirt and 1 p.m. admission, at: https://www.sanfordontap.org/event-info/sanford-on-tap.

Tickets are $40 at the door.

Grady said Sanford Police will be on hand to check identification of those wishing to sample the beer – the legal drinking age in Maine is 21 – and then attendees will be issued bracelets. Tasting tickets include a commemorative glass.
