The Yes We, CAN! Canned Craft Beer Festival returns once again this Saturday, July 4, from 6 to 10 p.m.


This all-ages, 100-percent-recyclable celebration will feature beer from close to 40 craft breweries plus at least 8 cideries. Entertainment will be provided by Bluegrass / Americana-stomp bands Polecat and Wild Rabbit, live performances from the Bellingham Circus Guild, games for the kids, and one of the best views in town of the fireworks show. Also, street food will be available from various vendors.


“Environmentally, canned beer is the best option – from beginning to end,” says Hannah Coughlin, Manager of Communications and Development for RE Sources and organizer of Yes, We CAN! “This festival is about crushing the can stigma in this region and raising funds for RE Sources’ conservation efforts.”

RE Sources helped to start curbside recycling in Whatcom County decades ago, and it’s constantly working on new ways to conserve more, reuse more and recycle more. This event will feature some of The RE Store’s innovative solutions to the problem of excessive waste.
