Feast of St. Arnold family-friendly beer festival
“Family-friendly beer fest” may be a strange phrase, but this feast includes a kids’ zone with activities for all ages. The adult draw isn’t just beer and food. Keep your cups for wine and spirits as well. What's more, proceeds support Westside Cares, which provides food assistance and other programs to people in need. Noon to 4:30 p.m., Chapel of Our Savior Episcopal Parish in the Broadmoor,
