Lander Chamber hosts great summer events – Why?
Lander LIVE and Brewfest are projects of the Lander Chamber of Commerce, and made possible by local businesses, their generous support and grants. By showcasing regional and local craft breweries, food and non-food items, and then pairing them with great live music, these events put the spotlight on our community as well as important industries in our economy. These events are attracting folks from father reaches each year. Not only do the festivals showcase our region, but provides Chamber members an additional avenue to gain business exposure. In that way, Brewfest and Lander LIVE are multi-purpose: promote businesses to attendees and create community-driven summer fun. Festivals such as these in small mountain communities across the nation attract tourists and residents alike. These events create a sense of place; a small home-town welcome to get together and enjoy music and each other.
About Lander Brewfest:
The Lander Brewfest will be celebrating its 15th year and now offers its audience samples of over 70 craft beers from over 25 breweries. It is a two-day event, with music from three different acclaimed bands generating excitement and fun for the whole family. Supported by local businesses and volunteers, this event has grown to be a regional favorite and a great way to start the summer. It is estimated that over 3,000 people enjoy this festival each year, including many out-of-town visitors. The 2017 Brewfest takes place in Lander City Park on Friday, June 9 from 5-9:00 pm and on Saturday, June 10 from 2-7:00 pm. Tickets are on sale at www.landerbrewfest.com

About Lander LIVE:
Lander LIVE is a summer concert series that brings high-quality, national, live music to the residents of Lander, Central Wyoming, and beyond. These community events are open to the public and are donation-supported. The four shows are financially supported by grants, other sponsors and donations to offset the cost of event production, bands, and staff time. Lander LIVE is now in its third season and the concert dates are July 20, July 27, August 10 and August 21, which is also the Great American Solar Eclipse celebration (see below for all concert information!). In addition to music, each concert features a street fair with vendor booths to purchase food, beverages, and local wares. One of Lander LIVE’s main goals is to create a fun, memorable and lively summer concert series for our community. These concerts host nationally touring headliner bands that typically do not play in Wyoming and bring them to Lander. These bands are then paired with Wyoming-based opening artists. Four nationally touring headlining acts have been booked. These community concerts have grown to upwards of 1,500 people who attend each concert.
