NOLA Motorsports Park will host a beer festival in its events space.

NOLA Motorsports Park (11075 Nicolle Blvd., Avondale, 504-302-4875; www.nolamotor.com/westbank-beer-fest-2016) will host a beer festival from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, July 16. The 610 Stompers are partnering with the park, and a portion of proceeds will benefit charities supported by the group, says NOLA Motorsports Park Director of Sales and Marketing Scott Touchton.

  The event will feature music by Soul Brass Band, the Bucktown All-Stars and DJ Brice Nice.

  When asked why the park organized the event, Touchton said, "NOLA Motorsports Park has a large, indoor, air-conditioned space trackside, so we wanted to put it to good use."

  The event space overlooks the park's track, where park customers can drive a Ferrari, Lamborghini or other vehicles.

  Festival admission includes unlimited sampling from participating breweries, a souvenir tasting glass and a raffle for tickets to NOLA Motorsports Park activities. Manning's will sell food at the event. The VIP ticket includes entry an hour early and access to a VIP area.

  Shuttle service to the festival is available from Harrah's New Orleans and an Elmwood location. General admission is $30 or $50 with shuttle transportation. VIP admission is $50 without shuttle service and $60 with transportation. VIP admission begins at noon. Festival updates including participating breweries will be posted on the event Facebook page (www.facebook.com/westbankbeerfest).
