When financial budget cuts by the state of Pennsylvania threatened to cancel the 2009 Christmas Crossing event, forcing the park towards imminent closure, the Friends of Washington Crossing Park (FWCP) was formed to raise funds to prevent the loss of a historical landmark. FWCP understands the importance of the park as both a national treasure and as a source of great regional pride. As a result, the Washington Crossing Brewfest a beer event with high quality drafts was created to raise capital with the sole purpose of defraying some of the operating costs so the park can be enjoyed for generations to come. The Washington Crossing Brewfest is scheduled for May 11, 2013 from 12:30pm-4:30pm featuring over 50 of the country’s best breweries and tremendous support from many regional breweries. A better location for a brewfest than along the Delaware River in a pastoral wooded landscape would be difficult to envision!
