There’s no “I” in Festa. But that’s OK, because you’ll be guzzling too much local food and beer to notice. The kid-friendly Mesta Festa is an annual endof-summer celebration to raise funds for the Mesta Park Neighborhood Association. Festivities take place from noon to 5 p.m. Saturday at Perle Mesta Park, 1900 N. Shartel Ave. Visit mestapark.org.
Do you like food trucks, adult beverages and live music? Aw, who are we kidding? Of course you do! So get on down (or up, depending on where you live) to Edmond for EdFest, featuring a buffet of fresh food, beer-tasting and local bands, including fiddle sensation Kyle Dillingham (pictured). Festivities begin at 6 p.m. Friday at the Edmond Farmers Market, 26 W. First St. Admission is free. Visit edfestokc.com.
If you’ve ever drunk some beer and thought, Man, I wish this was coffee instead, the folks at Black Mesa Brewing Co. and Elemental Coffee Roasters have the brew for you. The OKC-based companies will debut Red Badger Stout, a coffee-infused craft beer, with a tasting event from 7:30-9:30 p.m. Thursday at Elemental Coffee, 815 N. Hudson Ave. Admission is free, but space is limited. Call 633-1703 or visit facebook.com/elementalcoffee.
