Groove ‘n Brew is intended as a fundraiser for the Newberry Downtown Development Association (NDDA) to pursue economic development initiatives, such as strengthening our small business community through education, networking and promotion, development of upstairs spaces to increase foot traffic downtown, and advocating for change with City and County Leadership. NDDA proposes it is time for the community to come together to help usher in the next revitalization phase of downtown Newberry.
The street festival and outdoor entertainment at Groove ‘n Brew is free. A cover charge of $5 includes an over-21 wristband (pending an ID check) and a commemorative festival cup (while supplies last). Beer may only be served in the designated festival cup.
