Festival of Dark Arts & Lovell Auto Co

Unfortunately, the darkest stout festival in the world is going dark for 2021.

If you have been to a Festival of Dark Arts, you know it must be experienced to be believed. 3000 of the liveliest stout fans packed onto one city block, overflowing with dark art, darker entertainment, and the darkest collection of beers ever assembled at a single event. For those of you who have never attended, you will have to wait until 2022, because the Festival of Dark Arts experience cannot be replicated virtually. Let it be known, the “Best Oregon Beer Festival” as voted by the Willamette Week Oregon Beer Awards in 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, and 2020 WILL be back. But it won’t be in 2021.

We’re excited to open the invitation to the Lovell Auto Co, a new limited membership club.
