Tippecanoe Arts Federation Announces Socially-Distanced
Craft Beer Event In Place of 2021 TAP for TAF
Lafayette, Ind. - The Tippecanoe Arts Federation (TAF) announced the creation of a new fundraising event in place of the 2021 TAP for TAF Craft Brew Festival. The new event, entitled Tap and Go, is a craft beer drink and walk event featuring Tippecanoe County breweries. Attendees will follow the Tap and Go route through Downtown Lafayette to check-out public art and drink at beer stations along the route.
Planning for Tap and Go began during the Coronavirus quarantine, in an attempt to create a socially-distanced and safe craft beer event. "We love TAP for TAF and our craft beer community. We wanted to create an event that craft beer drinkers will still love and can attend safely," said Marketing and Events Director Kyra Clark.
TAF has many event guidelines in place to ensure attendees' safety. Attendees in groups of 15 will leave the starting line every fifteen minutes to keep the walking route and sampling stations free of congestion. All participants and volunteers will be required to wear masks as long as they are not sampling. Attendees will use disposable cups while sampling and all serving volunteers will wear latex gloves. Clark is also working with the Tippecanoe County Health Department on the safety plan.
Tap and Go will take place February 27, beginning at 1 pm at the Wells Community Cultural Center (638 North Street). Tickets will go on sale November 13 at 9 am, only at TippecanoeArts.org/TapAndGo. Early Admission tickets are $40 until January 25, when ticket prices will increase to $50. Proceeds from Tap and Go will benefit the Tippecanoe Arts Federation and its mission to grow the arts in 14 Indiana counties.
