Rock 102 brewfest at new location Saturday

Fest has been held in Northampton prior to this year

WEST SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – A popular beer festival has a new home. Rock 102’s summer Brewfest is moving from the Three County fairgrounds in Northampton to West Springfield.

The 10th annual event will be Saturday at the Irish Cultural Center Pavilion. That’s off of Morgan Road.

West Springfield police Chief Ron Campurciani told 22News the lot can easily park 200-300 cars and the site should be able to handle any overflow.

“If it’s a big event and they’re gonna do more than that (meaning if it’s a big event and they’re going to park more than 250 cars) then if it was ever to over flow and then we’ll deal with it at that point. But at this point I think the way that venue is, the way it’s set up that there’s plenty of room back there for parking,” said Chief Campurciani.

As for traffic, Chief Campurciani says they don’t anticipate any problems, but do have officers scheduled to help direct traffic until 7 p.m.

Summer Brewfest is Saturday from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.
