Looking for somewhere to take your dear old dad on Father’s Day? The Chattanooga Market has you covered—especially if Dad is into beer and banjos. On June 16, the Market is putting on a Father’s Day Brews & Bluegrass celebration, hosted by New Belgium Brewery. Plenty of local and regional breweries will be on hand with bottles and drafts, including Highland Brewing Company, Atlanta Brewing Company, Terrapin Brewing Company and Chattanooga Brewing Company. Packway Handle Band and the Barker Brothers will be handling the bluegrass side of things, both performing on the EPB stage at 12:30 and 2:00 p.m., respectively. Families with young kids won’t be left out either, as Habitat for Humanity brings their annual Lego Build Contest to the market the same day. The rest of the market will be open as usual, so pick up some fresh local meat and veggies for a great Father’s Day cookout while you’re there.
Sunday, June 16, 11 a.m. – 4 p.m., Chattanooga Market, First Tennessee Pavilion, 1829 Carter St. chattanoogamarket.com.
