WHAT IS Smoke in the Valley?
October 5th, Smoke in the Valley Craft Beer Festival returns to a new home in 2019 for it's 10th Year! The event was founded and organized by the not for profit Seymour Tradition (501c3). Smoke in the Valley since inception is a fundraising event to raise money for numerous, local non-profit groups including; Seymour Youth Sports programs, Volunteer Fire and EMS, local food banks, and many other great causes as well. To date, the festival has raised over $200,000 since inception, for local 501c3 charities. In 2017 The Sound Magazine, LLC took on the role of producing and hosting the world class Craft Beer-Music-Food Fest, with proceeds going back out to local community organizations such as the Seymour Land Trust, Seymour Cares Animal Shelter, New Reach Inc and for 2019 the Connecticut Brewers Guild. Continuing for its 10th year this year we hope you join us in having a great time, creating memories and all the while supporting the local community.
