The Santa Clarita Valley Chamber of Commerce introduces the inaugural Expo Beer Garden & Food Truck Fest at SCV Community Expo on Sunday, Sept. 18 from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Santa Clarita Sports Complex. The Sports Complex is located at 20880 Centre Pointe Parkway near the intersection of Golden Valley Road with access via the cross-valley connector.

The Beer Garden features a mix of familiar, novel and specialty beer brands available for purchase, along with food from various gourmet food truck vendors. Anheuser-Busch will provide key components of the beer garden, including a 26-foot refrigerated trailer to keep the brews perfectly chilled. Selected brews are scheduled to include Budweiser, Bud Light, Shock Top, Redhook Longhammer, and Stella Artois, and Shock Top Pumpkin as a seasonal beer.

Admittance to the Beer Garden requires an event wristband available for $3; must be ages 21 or over. There’s no charge for access to food trucks or exhibit halls.

Live entertainment on the community stage gets the party going starting with Santa Clarita-based, classic rock, pop, and R&B band, Blue Sky. Performing in the big band jazz genre, the 20-piece ensemble group The Damn Handsome Band takes center stage in the afternoon with its brass sounds.

The Expo Beer Garden and Food Truck Fest is just one event planned to draw thousands of local residents to the Sports Complex on Sept. 16, 17 and 18. The SCV Chamber of Commerce in association with the City of Santa Clarita presents the 27th Annual SCV Community Expo (also known as the Home and Business Expo) and Taste of Expo! celebration.
