Red, White, & Brew Proceeds Benefit Your United Way!


Looking for something out of the ordinary to do on Independence Day Weekend? Hoping to listen to some local music and sample some local beer? What about supporting a local nonprofit you know and love?

Red, White, & Brew brings all these elements together! Live music, food, and drinks — and a chance to benefit your United Way!

Join us at Centre Market on Friday, July 1 from 5:00-11:00 p.m.! It’s a free event! 

Those 21+ who want to drink must purchase a $2 wristband. All proceeds from wristband purchases will be donated to United Way of the Upper Ohio Valley.

Making Summer Memories

One of the best things about summers in Wheeling is the First Fridays events. 

You’re practically guaranteed a good time! You’ll probably run into an old friend or meet someone new.

The First Fridays event in July offers extended hours and even more opportunities to treat yourself to a night on the town. Gates open at 5:00 p.m., and you can enjoy these highlights all the way until 11:00 p.m.

Musical Guests

The Muddle will be on stage beginning at 6:00 p.m., serenading you with crowd-favorite acoustic rock.

And at 9:00 p.m., M.S.M. will take over to play the rest of the night.

Have you heard of either of these bands before? Are you looking forward to seeing them on July 1?

Food Trucks

Wood Fired Pizza Company and Desparado Dogs along with several Centre Market restaurants will be providing food! (Food trucks and restaurants will be operating independently of the festival)

An Independence Day Party for a Good Cause

On July 1, music, beer, and food will unite to form a community event that provides hope for your neighbors in need. The funds raised through this event will go directly to the United Way of the Upper Ohio Valley Annual Campaign. We support local projects by allocating money from the Annual Campaign to member agencies in the form of grant funding.

Here are the top 3 ways you can ensure your neighbors in need will benefit from Red, White, & Brew:

1. Buy a Wristband or a Package

This option is for those of legal age who want to drink beer. You’ll be ID’d when you buy your wristband, and then you’ll be able to drink throughout the event without being carded again.

Wristband packages include a beer mug and one free drink!

The proceeds from all wristband and package sales will benefit United Way of Upper Ohio Valley.

Wristbands are $2 each.

Wristband packages are $12

2. Leave a Tip With the Vendors

Beer tent volunteers are graciously donating their tip jars to United Way! There’s never been a more important reason to tip well. Don’t forget to smile and thank your server for their generosity!

3. Spread the Word

Let’s make sure lots of people come out to Centre Market on July 1! When you’re telling your friends, remember these key details:

  • Red, White, & Brew is free
  • It’s open to all ages
  • The event lasts from 5:00-11:00 p.m.
