Good Morning, Chivers!
Chive New England is gearing up for Hookfest 2015, and we’re excited to announce some information about our next event!
Hosted at the beautiful Redhook Brewery in Portsmouth NH, Hookfest is an all-day outdoor music festival featuring some pretty great bands which culminates with none other than legendary New England band RUSTIC OVERTONES! Gates open for the event at 2:00pm on Saturday August 15th, and we’re going ’til they run out of beer!
As Chivers, Redhook has set us up with our own private area and a Chiver-exclusive beer line! That’s right! While everyone else is sweating in long lines, we’ll be rocking much shorter lines for frosty cold beverages. We’ll also be raffling off a bunch of great prizes like shirts, glassware, and a few other goodies from theChivery and Redhook Brewery for charity. Just added to the prize pile this afternoon is a pair of tickets to our Chive Your Sox Off event at Fenway Park (you can check out our event page on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/events/1659655820934731/ , or on Chive New England’s website at https://www.chivenewengland.com/event/chive-new-england-presents-chive-your-sox-off/ ). We’ll be selling raffle tickets for most of our prizes for $5, and the Sox tickets will be $10 per raffle entry, and all proceeds and donations will be going to Donate Life New England.
Donate Life New England is an organization that helps spread awareness and registration for organ donor programs, and has most notably popped up recently as the charity that Andy Blacksmith (of WHEB’s Morning Buzz fame) had worked with and requested donations for before his passing earlier this year.
A few pro-tips for those who haven’t been lucky enough to attend Hookfest:
- Cash will make your day much easier! Food trucks, merch kiosks, and beer ticket tents all move faster with cash, and not all vendors will be taking credit or debit cards.
- Don’t be shy about wandering out of our private area! Hookfest always brings about some very interesting vendors and food selections. We’re locked down for space to hang out, so you don’t have to worry about losing your perfect seat.
- Sunblock is your friend. We’re going to be outside in the sun for the better part of eight rockin’ hours, so make sure you stay protected and stay hydrated. Redhook is cracking down on outside food and drink, but we’re clear to bring water in with us for the day.
- Bring a seat! As we have our own space set up, we’ve got room for chairs and blankets to get comfy on.
