There will be a new VIP Experience added to the second annual event, kicking off on Friday, May 10 with an exclusive brewery tour at Idyll Hounds Brewing Company, followed by an intimate private dinner under the stars at 30Avenue. Presenting sponsor, Idyll Hound Proper, will be catering the elegant affair while guests enjoy live music from three Nashville singer-songwriters, including Andy Albert, Kelly Archer, and Adam Hambrick. VIP ticket holders will also gain early access to the festival on Saturday, a custom hat, and all the same perks as general admission. A limited number of VIP tickets are on sale for $125 per person and can be purchased at FoamFest30A.com.

“After last year’s success, we wanted to expand the 30A Foam Fest experience with a VIP option for those looking to learn more about the beers, experience a more intimate setting with these brew masters, and really immerse themselves into the process of creating specialty brews,” said Lance Stokes, founder of 30A Foam Fest. “Of course, it’s also for those that want to extend the festival experience and indulge in amazing food, listen to music from talented Nashville musicians, and sip on some exclusive beers that others haven’t tried yet.”

Proceeds from 30A Foam Fest will benefit Neurodiversity Resource of the Panhandle, a community-based, family focused, platform that provides programs and services based on the growing needs of families living with neurodiversity.

“We are incredibly honored to be chosen as this year’s beneficiary for such a fun community event,” said Beth Roberts, founder and executive director of Neurodiversity Resource of the Panhandle. “We really appreciate the hosts and sponsors of this event recognizing our Neurodiverse community and the resources and aid we are able to provide them. Without incredible community support like this, we couldn’t do what we do! We can’t wait to meet those that will attend and share our mission!”

According to Neurodiversity Resource of the Panhandle, typical therapy cost is anywhere from $80 to $135 per hour, often needed multiple times a week, while diagnostics can range from $1,000 to $2,500. The organization has an online provider connection resource, community outreach with educational seminars and support groups, and lastly their financial aid portal which is currently accepting applications.
