Costumes & Cocktails

There appears to be a theme of handcrafted food, drink, and outdoor fun through the month of October. Just in time to celebrate the end of summer and enjoy the cooler weather up north. Join Holiday Inn Columbia as we point out a couple great ideas for stepping into a month filled with healthy and family-friendly festivities.

A regional favorite, the South East Craft Beer Fest, on October 14th and 15th, is two days filled to very top with beer enthusiasm. There will be over 40 breweries on deck to sample and sell their craft beverages. Located at 1306 Hathman Place, right in Columbia.


But for a good time that’s certain to please anybody look no further than the Central Missouri Renaissance Festival (October 22-23). Take a step or two back in time—there’s every opportunity to grab a turkey leg, challenge a pirate, or seek the king’s royal blessing. Located at Boster Castle Fairgrounds.
