Did Kale & Ale Fest fail before it even began?

Many Columbus festivals have withstood the test of time—like ComFest—while others—like PromoWest Fest—couldn’t make a second go.

Kale & Ale Fest may have just joined the ranks of the latter except they may not even get an inaugural year under their belt.


The first year for this local, farm-to-table food and craft beverage festival was slated for this Saturday, June 2 from 2-6pm in Genoa Park.

But according to Facebook and Reddit discussions, Kale & Ale Fest is a fail.

The Crest, Rockmill Brewery, Wolf’s Ridge, BrewDog, Platform Beer, Seventh Son, Four String, Land-Grant, and many more were schedule to vend. Doc Robinson and Hebdo were to provide entertainment.

There has been no statement from the festival organizers on the website or social media channels.
